Back by popular demand, Fevered Sleep's Men & Girls Dance brings together two very different groups of performers: men who dance professionally and girls from London who dance for fun.
At times playful, at times thought-provoking, Men & Girls Dance celebrates the rights of adults and children to be together, to play together and to dance together. It’s a joyful celebration of tenderness, empathy, and love.
“Fevered Sleep’s quietly radical, hour-long effort wears its importance with a creditable lightness and grace.” ★★★★ The Times
“Fevered Sleep’s almost recklessly brave participatory dance project is an utter delight” - The Guardian
Fevered Sleep has an international reputation for making exquisitely crafted and surprising performances that invite people to view the world in different ways.
Age Recommendation: 12+
Cast includes: Mikel Aristegui, Rob Clark, Nathan Goodman, Kip Johnson & Akshay Sharma
The Men & Girls Dance project is a celebration of normal, positive relationships between men and girls – relationships that are based on play, trust, care, protection and love. Fevered Sleep have created a newspaper which includes a collection of creative writing on the themes of the project, such as love, empathy and trust. The newspaper is a response to most other newspapers, in which the reporting of the relationship between men and girls tends to be negative.
