Expect to laugh, cry and sing along to the classics whilst four bridal-clad women attempt to entertain, delight and maintain their dignity. Using their unique concoction of wildly entertaining dance theatre, Gracefool Collective invite you to be guests at the non-wedding event of the year as they take on themes of tradition, conformity and expectation.
It’s not a wedding, but it is a celebration, and everyone is invited.
“A brilliantly observed pastiche… hilarious"
“You guys completely cracked it...some of the best work I've seen in 30yrs in dance and theatre”
Please note: This performance will take place in Studio 1
Feminist, forthright and fiercely funny, Gracefool Collective is made up of four female dance artists, all graduates of Northern School of Contemporary Dance. Previous commissions include Furnace (West Yorkshire Playhouse), Northern Connections (NSCD, 2015 and 2017) and Reveal Festival (Octagon Theatre). Gracefool have performed nationally and internationally with their critically acclaimed work This really is too much, including a successful run at the 2017 Edinburgh Fringe Festival as part of the Underbelly Untapped programme, an award for ‘exceptional and innovative new work’. They have recently been supported through Choreodrome, Surf The Wave, and Yorkshire Dance’s Partner Project.
This Is Not a Wedding has been generously supported by Activate Performing Arts, Arts Council England, Northern School of Contemporary Dance, The Place, Yorkshire Dance
