Dance Marathon

Mayfest presents bluemouth inc's immersive show : there’s only one rule: keep moving your feet.

Dance Marathon

bluemouth inc. create immersive site-specific performances that marry choreography, text, original live music, and film.

In Dance Marathon, there’s only one rule: keep moving your feet.

Award-winning Canadian theatre collective bluemouth inc bring their worldwide smash hit Dance Marathon to Mayfest. It’s theatre, it’s a party, it’s a dance contest and it’s completely exhilarating and exhausting.

Based on the 1930s Depression-era American dance marathons, you are invited to dance the night away under the watchful eye of the referee on roller-skates, the ticking clock and accompanied by live music from our very own Dance Marathon house band.

In a three-hour endurance contest, compete with your fellow dancers to be crowned Dance Marathon champion. Those with two left feet can simply sit back and enjoy the fancy footwork.

Show runs 3hrs plus intervals

14 + This is an immersive show for all ages and for anyone between the ages of 14-90 who likes to dance.

 

To say that DANCE MARATHON breaks down the fourth wall – The imaginary wall that separates the audience from the performance in a traditional theatre – Is an understatement. IT ELIMINATES IT.

Kevin Griffin, Vancouver Sun

“bluemouth inc.'s Dance Marathon is perhaps the richest, fullest theatre experience I've ever had. This extraordinary event, which mashes up the dance marathon concept from the '20s and '30s with contemporary dance/physical theatre and a sort of live version of reality TV, is joyous, exhilarating, remarkably moving, and wondrously fun. Do it—it isn't a thing to merely be seen—and you will find the barriers and boundaries of conventional performance pushed wide open; you'll understand anew what theatre can be.”

Martin Denton, nytheatre.com1
