The Dancing Public

Tonight, is for dancing
Tonight, we’ll be dancing…

In The Dancing Public, Ingvartsen explores ecstatic movement at social gatherings in the aftermath of a pandemic. Her solo blows up the solitary confinement of 2020 with a mix of unstoppable movements, incessant music, words and chants in infernal tempos and rhythms. The Dancing Public is a dance party, a spoken word concert and an expression of physical madness to the point of exhaustion. What is this extreme need for movement that we feel in our bodies today? Are we ready to taste life to the full again?

This performance will take place in Manhattan, Kol. Begaultlaan 21. All ticket holders will be contacted directly.

The performance is the perfect way to discover Manhattan, which will be the location where STUK will work this fall - in collaboration with De Hoorn.
Curious about our fall plans in Manhattan? All will be revealed in June.
