Alan Greig Dance Theatre/Grant Smeaton present DO YOU NOMI?
“one of the most refreshing, dark, funny, erotic and original new works it’s been my pleasure to see” Morag Deyes, Artistic Director, Dancebase
DO YOU NOMI? is a dynamic new production by award-winning director and actor, Grant Smeaton and seminal Scottish choreographer, Alan Greig.
It is the story of Klaus Nomi, a man with a unique singing talent and his rise to fame in the New York avant garde scene of the 1970s and 80s. It is also the story of a world which would be transformed by the new and much misunderstood AIDS virus.
An interdisciplinary performance weaving together dialogue, dance and theatre, DO YOU NOMI? will take its audience on a humorous, dark and sensual journey. Four male performers will shine a light on the life of Nomi, combining an emotionally driven narrative with the power and athleticism of dance.
This vibrant and visual production will leave the audience in no doubt as to the importance of this forgotten icon.
DO YOU NOMI? is performed by a company of dancers and actors – Jack Webb, Darren Anderson, Drew Taylor and Laurie Brown.
Age Guidance: 14+ due to adult themes.
