Nelson Arts Festival presents IF THERE'S NOT DANCING AT THE REVOLUTION, I'M NOT COMING

This is a work to wake us up a little.
This is a party. This is a poem. This is a call to arms.

If There's Not Dancing at the Revolution, I'm Not Coming is a rich contemporary performance collage of film scripts, pop songs, elaborate costumes, comedy, dance and live art, all stretched, teased, shattered and reassembled in order to challenge the treatment of women's bodies in popular culture.

If There's Not Dancing uncovers the collective fantasies underneath these bodies, intervenes and explodes them into feminist confetti.

"I loved it with a vengeance. I want to join her revolution." TOTAL THEATRE EDINBURGH

"... a riotous collision of cultural touchpoints, from Titanic to Psycho and Taylor Swift to the Ying Yang Twins, and it swings from moments of tear-inducing comedy to skin-crawling confrontation." GATHER&HUNT
