Blame Game explores how human relationships require us to navigate fault and responsibility. As a society we have wired our brains to take shortcuts and push away the burden of responsibility in favour of blame. Continuing themes explored in Union Black, and blending hip hop and circus skills, this new work looks at Brexit from a socio political perspective, drawing on both sides of an argument that has become intensely personal for all involved.
With innovative dance moves, Chinese pole and juggling, Blame Game explores our search for a scapegoat. By pointing the finger at the ‘other’, those who we disagree with politically and socially, we escape our own responsibilities.
Following a London R&D in early 2019 Blame Game will premiere later in the year, watch this space for more details.
