Living in poverty and under the rule of the patriarchy, the people of Strasbourg revolted one summer against oppression by taking to the streets. No ordinary protest, their uprising was a fever of dance on a scale never seen before – nor again – that lasted for months.
Depicted as collective madness in painting and folklore, this pulsating dance-theatre work interprets events from the inside out, revisioning them not as an illness but as catharsis.
Featuring Michael Parmenter and a cast of New Zealand dancers, Strasbourg 1518 combines exhilarating original music and choreography into a frenzied tale of anarchy, physicality and the power of art as resistance.
