Event description

Description

Wed 29 Nov 19.30

Arrival 19.30 / Performance starts 19.45

Booking essential

Highly visual, unabashedly experimental and underscored by generous humour, *Recreation* is a choreography about work. Rather, it's about the things that we do that aren't work, or that aren't quite work. It's a show about caring, about cooking, about sex, about gardening and meditating and singing in the kitchen and playing 5-a-side, and, of course, about dancing.

Performed by professional, not-quite-professional and non-professional dancers – including guest performers local to BALTIC - *Recreation* is a lamentation for leisure, a choreographed question of labour, a danced demand for seeing our value beyond our work.

Commissioned by ARC Stockton, Shoreditch Town Hall, and Yorkshire Dance. Supported by Arts Council England, Rajni Shah Projects, Dance4, and via South East Dance and Jerwood Charitable Foundation Dramaturg in Residence programme. With special thanks to Dance City and Northumbria University.
