Ensemble Festival: S.C.R.U.M. (by Avant Garde Dance)

Ensemble Festival: S.C.R.U.M. (by Avant Garde Dance)

S.C.R.U.M. is set in the near future, and dance is a crime. We should have seen it coming. We spent the first two decades of the new millennium gripped by fear. The war on terror, financial turmoil, climate change, and global pandemics, an anxious public turned to big tech and invasive surveillance for a safety blanket – but at what cost? S.C.R.U.M. immerses you amidst riotous protest; as a rabble of young digital natives confronts a powerful regime, the question is, will they rebel or conform?

Founder and chorographer Tony Adigun weaves Avant Garde’s trademark synaesthesia of hip-hop, contemporary dance and captivating soundtrack unfurling an electrifying 35-minute show for all ages. S.C.R.U.M. overlaps live performance with virtual reality content like never before.
