Cruising, Clubbing, Fucking: an elegy

A dance-theatre show exploring how gay men have met and seduced each other, from the 60’s to the present day.

Coinciding with World Pride 2012 weekend, the show is part of a collective celebration of relationships and intimacy. Blending bodies with beats and contemporary dance styles with gesture, the dancers move their way through this world of late night lust, combining seduction, sex and moments of human tenderness.

Workshops on Wednesday 27 and Thursday 28 June at 4pm will explore queer histories, engaging LGBT youth in some of the less prominent narratives of developments, from changing attitudes to homosexuality to queer subcultures.

Sat 30 June: after 4pm show:
Performance followed by a post-show discussion with Joseph Mercier and dancer Sebastian Langueneur, about the thematic of the show and the artistic processes undergone by the company

Mercier turns what society may see as a sleazy, grungy gay scene of changing rooms, porn cinemas and clubs into a utopia of freedom, dance and “fucking” in this great studio piece.
