Men & Girls Dance by Fevered Sleep brings together two very different groups of performers: adult, male professional contemporary dancers, and girls who dance for fun.
At times playful, at times thought-provoking, Men & Girls Dance celebrates the rights of adults and children to be together, to play together and to dance together. It’s a joyful celebration of tenderness, empathy, and love.
After a successful tour in 2016, and two weeks of performances at The Place in London in spring 2017, Men & Girls Dance took place at Tate Britain in summer 2017, presented by Tate London’s Early Years and Families Learning Programme. In this brand new version, the dancers met in a series of playful encounters reimagined for the unique setting of the Walk Through British Art Galleries.
The project’s first international residency took place at Skånes Dansteater in Malmö, Sweden in November 2018 as part of their Dance & People festival.
Men & Girls Dance will next take place at The Place in London on 25, 26, 27, 29 & 30 April 2019.
As part of the project, we produce a newspaper featuring creative writing on the themes of the work, and a pop up space where people can talk about Men & Girls Dance called The Talking Place.
