This sounds like dance with a difference. Using the vast expanse of Battersea Arts Centre with its maze of corridors and hidden spaces as well as the glorious Grand Hall, James Cousins and his cast of 70 performers lead the audience a merry dance up staircases, through secret rooms in a large-scale immersive dance piece. It ends with a vast after party in which everyone gets to dance together. There is text by Sabrina Mahfouz and music that runs from classical to grime in a piece considering how we connect and build the future together.
Immerse yourself and party with friends in an electric club atmosphere with We Are As Gods, James Cousins Company‘s first large scale immersive experience drawing together James Cousins’ ‘strikingly original’ (The Guardian) choreography with music and sound design by Torben Lars Sylvest (Far From the Norm, Scottish Dance Theatre) and Pär Carlsson (Film4). Featuring recorded text written by British-Egyptian poet Sabrina Mahfouz; discover a maze of rooms, rooftops and secret stairways throughout our building filled with the UK’s most exciting dance talent. Design your night with a medley of local food and drink as tender duets and powerful group performances writhe to the heartbeat of London’s nightlife, culminating in a euphoric after-party in our Grand Hall.
