Loud. In your face. Sexual but not sexy.
NO FUN is an interdisciplinary dance performance inspired by the movement and music of the legendary punk icon Iggy Pop. This rockstravaganza laughs in the face of failure, reaches out and strangles people, and doesn’t take itself too seriously. For 50 minutes, three dancers and four musicians hit you full force with a giant wall of movement and sound, leaving you feeling somewhere between “F*ck yeah!” and “What the hell just happened?” Grab some earplugs on your way in and leave your expectations in the lobby. We will have a real cool time tonight.
PS. NO FUN is literally about nothing, so don’t worry if you don’t “get it”. You’re doing alright. Just feel alright.
