Idiot-Syncrasy

£17 (£13 concessions)

Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

We started with wanting to change the world with a performance. We felt like idiots.

Then we danced a lot. We jumped. We called on the folk traditions of Sardinia and the Basque Country. We sang. We jumped some more. We committed.

Now we promise to persevere. We promise to be open. We promise to do our best.


Don’t miss your chance to see the critically acclaimed Idiot-Syncrasy as it returns to The Place for one night only.

Idiot-Syncrasy is a dance performance by Work Place Artists Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas that uses jumping – both literally and metaphorically – to explore our capacity to persevere, care and hope. This show is both playful and serious in how it welcomes audiences, whilst gently demanding that they too are responsible for noticing change and difference.

**** "Idiot-Syncrasy is a warm, fabulous and funny show"

The Guardian

***** "Unmissable! A simple but immersive performance that defies all initial expectations and explanations."
