Tuesday 24 October
Theatre & Performance
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 Shoreditch Town Hall - Recreation is a lamentation for leisure, a choreographed question of labour, a danced demand for seeing our value beyond our work.
