Dressed ready for a riot and dancing distorted folk dances of times gone by; four performers are caught between different notions of masculinity.
‘bYOB’ stages contrasting versions of bravado and belonging, and reflects on the rise of nationalism and mob mentality. Four men grapple with their roles in the performance and the world.
70/30 Split (UK) is comprised of Lydia Cottrell and Sophie Unwin, a female performance duo who choreograph satirical and provocative dance through words, singing and stomping.
“Cottrell and Unwin are as touching as they are resolutely fearless.”
Tickets:£13, £8 for qualifying concessions
