Crooked Figure Dances
Personal, theatrical and political performance: dance that gets to the heart of the matter
Crooked Figure Dances exists to create absorbing and socially relevant text-based dance creations that explore and question the experience of being. CFD is a platform for a dance theatre of inquiry, ideas, humour, passion, intense physicality and intellectual exploration.
Some quotes from our inaugural production, DESPAIR...and other conundrums:
"Collectively the madcap creativity of this program makes for a wild ride."
"This production is heady stuff and opens new vistas in the fusion of dance and theatre."
"Despair . . . and other conundrums is not for the faint of heart. The dance/theatre production that emerges from the noir collaboration of Kate Alton's Crooked Figure Dances and Ross Manson's Volcano is so edgy that it has already fallen over the cliff. It is a must-see if your tastes run to extreme arts."
