STAN WON'T DANCE presents SINNER

A self-destructive solo for two men. Idea and text by Ben Payne Devised by Ellie Beedham, Ben Payne, Liam Steel and Rob Tannion Directed and Performed by Liam Steel & Rob Tannion Design: Ruth Finn The face in your dreams. The face in the crowd. The face you catch momentarily behind you in the mirror. The love of your life. The lunatic that will cut you down. The one whom you meet when you meet your own self coming back... "Film in the flesh...They throw out provocative dialogue with the same ease as they throw each other" criticaldance.com Based upon the events surrounding the Soho Bomber, Sinner explores our societies' need to construct icons of absolute good and evil. Sensational former DV8 performers, Rob Tannion and Liam Steel join forces with writer Ben Payne to shatter the limits of physical and emotional endurance. Stan Won't Dance explodes onto the scene and leaves no doubt that its highly original style of work breaks all the rules creating a fresh new theatrical language by successfully integrating original text with inventive choreography, design and video. "the new face of British Dance theatre" The Guardian "intoxicating,.full of power and urgency…everyone should see this" Dance Europe WARNING - The material is of an adult nature.
