We Can Dance is an act of celebration; it’s an accompanied solo; or rather, an invitation to dance; or even, perhaps, also a disco. This piece moves between what’s possible and what’s forbidden by means of the laws that regulate or ban the act of dancing in different places, in order to question where personal and external limits lie.

It begins at that first step we take just before we start dancing. Once you start, it’s hard to stop, you start moving, get into that disco groove. At what point does movement become dance? What happens when it occurs in places where it’s forbidden?

A staged game constructed from the cogs represented by three bodies on stage: the dj body, the lighting body, and the dancing body.
