Collective Loss of Memory by DOT504 Dance Company (Czech Republic, 60 mins)

Place five men in a confined space, where masculinity is championed and a virulent type of group phenomena can take hold, in this case with a brutal outcome.The influence on each other when in a group can have a profound and irrational effect on a  human’s thinking. A powerful, humorous and shocking show, dripping in sweat, that questions our sense of individuality. Double award winners at last year’s Czech Dance Platform Festival, the show is directed and choreographed by Jozef Fruček & Linda Kapetanea who also conceived the Fighting Monkey concept and touring workshops.

Recommended 18+ (some extreme violence)
