Synopsis


Dance, darkness and bass frequencies - Heavy handed, we crush the moment is an immersive experience, somewhere between a dreamscape, a meditation, a nightmare and a nightclub.


Over four evenings, Last Yearz Interesting Negro (the performance project of artist and dancer Jamila Johnson-Small) will present a series of genre-blurring happenings in the Pit, staging a new choreographic work that features performances by guest artists each night.


Focusing on the sensory impact of the live encounter for performers and audience alike, this work is an invitation to reflect on boundaries, intimacy, spectacle and the inevitability of movement.


Last Yearz Interesting Negro and collaborators create a charged atmosphere through sound, light, set and live performance.


Working from the potential of dance as a radical social practice, this performance commission is a contemporary response to the Barbican exhibition Into the Night: Cabarets and Clubs in Modern Art (4 October 2019 - 19 January 2020).
