Roadworks – is a quirky and humorous engagement between a dancer and a BMX rider , devised and directed by Etta Ermini.
The dance theatre piece incorporates acrobatics, B-Boying, Contemporary dance, BMX-ing, music, clowning and physical theatre. Through a sequence of humorous events, an entertaining engagement unfolds amongst two characters that use their art form as a technique to communicate. Inspired by the Hip Hop ‘battle’ format – a multitude of creative expression is brought to life as they battle for their place on the road.
Roadworks is available as a 30 minutes piece and can be performed both outdoor, indoor and public spaces (see tech specs). It works especially well for cross art form, multi disciplinary festivals and even specialists events as it promotes collaboration and cross art-form practice and the show is suitable for families, young children, teenagers and adults alike.”Roadworks is a charming, quirky story of rivalry and physical skills, performed with a fresh directness.”Eckhard Thiemann, International Producer & Promoter
