The Work, The Work & THE BAHH BAND concert

Visceral, provocative, funny, Fitzgerald & Stapleton have carved out an international reputation for their bold yet intimate explorations of contemporary identity. Life, they say, is both absurd and alluring, a grotesque practical joke constantly pulling away chairs from under dignity and reason. Their delight in the details of human existence struggles with their conviction of its futility.

The Work The Work features exclusive moves from internationally acclaimed choreographers Deborah Hay, Michael Klein, DD Dorvillier, Xavier LeRoy and Lucy Guerin.
