UK tour, 2017-2018
Two men on stage. A woman’s voice telling you a story. The men get dressed, get heckled, get aggressive. The woman wonders if there’s a difference between men’s and women’s bottoms.
Dancing Bear, Dancing Bear is a show about ‘men’ and ‘women’ and how we all relate to each other. Audiences listen on headphones to Hannah Ringham (co-founder of Shunt) who draws you into a hypnotic world of immersive sound and music.
