Colette Sadler (UK)

Dance4 presents nottdance TICKET DEAL BOOK FOR THREE NOTTDANCE EVENTS AT LAKESIDE AND GET THE THIRD HALF PRICE Suitable for ages 12+ Running time: 50 minutes Musical takes a humorous look at entertainment through the lens of postmodern dance. Playing with certain associations and expectations suggested by the title word, Musical is not traditionally entertaining but is rather about entertainment and self-amusement. Taking elements from historical music hall theatre the performance presents a tension between kitsch and minimalist aesthetics to develop a musical score in four choreographic movements. “Musical is extraordinarily striking… Sadler’s smart timed choreography is infectiously amusing.” NRC Handelsblad, Feb 2010 www.stammerproductions.com Photo: Raymond Mallentjer
