In FOLK FICTION, we invent our own folklore. Refined and archaic, sassy and formal. We invent a collective identity as a wild mix of self-portrait and utopia, inspired by our stories, preferences and desires. With pomp and poetry, silliness and seriousness, always carried by the pounding groove of tap.
TOUCH is a bright, curious, sensitive piece about the power of touch. Our sense of touch is a primal language and is vital for human existence. However, physical contact is becoming more and more rare in everyday life, and it’s not solely due to the coronavirus crisis. And in tap dance, touch doesn’t actually occur at all.
COWBOYS is a furious piece about populists in power. About the rat catchers, who are depicted as lone fighters against the establishment and who are celebrated and sanctified by their “people”. It’s about the thrill of violence, the bizarre clownery. It’s about the power of these underdog stories, and our role in them.
