It's a Jungle Out There

18 - 20 March

In his new solo show, choreographer and performer Martin del Amo explores the modern city as an ever-changing organism. Darkly funny and often surreal, the work distils the complexity of the urban experience into a multi-layered performance made of dance, story telling and electronic sound design.
Inspired by a quote from US author Tom Wolfe who once called the modern city ‘a billion-footed beast’ – wild, bizarre and unpredictable – It’s a Jungle Out There contrasts the rigidity of urban architecture and the formality of the street grid with the vibrancy and chaos that pulsates within it.
The work is set to an experimental electronic sound score composed and played live by sound artist Gail Priest.
