Why Are People Clapping!?
Why Are People Clapping!? by Ed Myhill is set to composer Steve Reich’s Clapping Music and uses rhythm as a driving force. The dancers use lively movement and clapping to create a soundtrack for the fun and dynamic dance.
12 – 14 November 2019
"With the music performed live by the dancers, this piece explores the simple sound of a clap and how it can be used to create a colourful and energetic soundscape and environment for dance. The dancers communicate through the sounds they make live with their own hands, creating a raw openness on stage. This is a light-hearted yet strongly driven piece of dance and music."
- Ed Myhill, Choreographer
"Slapping, clapping, rollicking dance"
