New Art Club: This Is Now
Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2009
Itís 1983 - Madonna releases her first album, Karma Chameleon by Boy Georgeís Culture Club is the top selling single in the UK, and the 13 year old future contemporary dance star Tom Roden illegally tapes the first ĎNow Thatís What I Call Musicí LP onto a C60 cassette. At the same time 15 year old Pete Shenton is busy painting his bedroom black and experimenting with which household product is best for making his hair spiky (its not furniture polish).
Join Britainís funniest dance duo as they jump headlong into the dark pool of days gone by and come out covered in a filthy 80ís gunk. By deconstructing this classic album Tom and Pete unearth funny dances and philosophical comedy about then, the future and now.
