A Company Chordelia and Scottish Opera co-production
Strict rules, extreme conditions and ferocious competition. The Dance Marathons of Depression-era America were the reality shows of their day. Attracting huge audiences, they could last for weeks, with competitors stopping for only 10 minutes each hour to change their clothes or sleep, and eating while they danced. 10 dancers, two actors and a six-piece jazz ensemble bring this drama to life to a soundtrack of songs from the 1930s, performed by soprano Nadine Livingston. Company Chordelia Artistic Director Kally Lloyd-Jones directs and Kennedy Aitchison leads the band.
