By using a minimal and repetitive vocabulary, rhythm and speed, drummer Will Guthrie and choreographer Mette Ingvartsen take the audience on an ecstatic journey.
All Around is the result of an encounter between drummer Will Guthrie and choreographer / dancer Mette Ingvartsen. The audience encircles a performance space inhabited by a drum kit, a moving light and the performers' bodies. By using a minimal and repetitive vocabulary, spinning and turning, rhythm and speed become the main components of a performance that drives towards an ecstatic and trance-like intensity.
