Ship of Fools

Running time: 60 minutes Suitable for 12+ Spiced with the music of ABBA , Pet Shop Boys and Michael Jackson, we confront a woman and two men on board their own Ship of Fools, an allegorical vessel without a helmsman or captain, seemingly ignorant of their own direction. Each is bound in a closed, protected world of their own. Nevertheless their encounters are inevitable. As the boundaries that separate the performers are crossed, their personal baggage falls apart and becomes exposed. 'Who is the fool? Us or them?' Both entertaining and thought-provoking, this work examines the fragile encounter between the human need to protect one's distinctiveness from destruction and a yearning for acceptance. This is a welcome return to Lakeside after their warmly received show in January 2012, Big Mouth/Covariance. Commissioned by Israel Festival 2011 and supported by Israeli Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Choreographers Association, Suzanne Dellal Centre and Adama. Nottdance returns as one of Europe's leading festivals, known for its innovative and entertaining programme and always with the question 'What can dance be?'
