/Dance/Songs/, like a good rock concert, flirts with obscenity. It can be over-the-top and out-of- control. The performers let it all out in front of the crowd. It is abandoned and joyful, intimate and tender. The work disrupts the dance concert with wit, energy and excess.
/Dance/Songs/ is a collaboration with Montreal-based musician Eric Craven
