Originally commissioned by Galway International Arts Festival in 2013, and later performed at Dublin Dance Festival in 2014, this live, high-energy human dance installation, with wild street energy and virtuosity, brings audiences back into a theatre setting.
HYPERACTIVE is hugely athletic, funny, and exciting, and was also a huge success at La MaMa Moves! Dance Festival, New York, 2015, where it was listed as one of “New York’s most memorable cultural events” by Infinite Body Dance Blog of the distinguished Dance writer, Eva Yaa Asantewaa.
The explosiveness of HYPERACTIVE, from the thrilling highly skilled male dancers, is second to none, and a must see. This performance is wonderfully enjoyable, using frenetic falls, athletic jumps, and physical extensions.
At the outset, this thrilling work, was a development derived from Scott’s hit show, Actions, another example of the sheer athleticism in his work. HYPERACTIVE’s live human architecture installation, with the finest cast of male dance talent, will be a treat for the eyes and the senses, set in a live safe setting at the new The Complex.
Opens at The Complex on Wednesday 30 September, running until Sunday 4 October.
