Un Peu De Tendresse Bordel de Merde description

Award-winning Canadian choreographer Dave St-Pierre has been a major force on the contemporary dance scene for over five years, he has been branded the 'enfant terrible' of his generation and provoked comparisons to Pina Bausch's theatre of cruelty. He makes his long awaited debut at Sadler's Wells with the second part of his wildly successful trilogy of works exploring contemporary utopias, Un peu de tendresse bordel de merde! (A Little Tenderness for Crying Out Loud!).


Un peu de tendresse bordel de merde! is about the search for love and the human form. Using humour to tackle taboo subjects, it features 20 dancers, naked both literally and figuratively. A narrator leads the audience on a journey through their emotions as the performers leap with a primal urgency, or lie crumpled and defeated on the ground, before climaxing in a breathtakingly beautiful and moving finale. This is a rare opportunity to see some of the most revolutionary and visually stunning dance theatre in decades.


 The show has some english spoken text.
