Ghost Dance

Description Details

'Almost unbearable, these bodies are uncontrollable' Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Germany

A slow dance to the score of another’s footsteps

Lone Twin, as part of their twentieth year celebrations, bring the seminal and storied Ghost Dance to Bristol.

Two blindfolded cowboys have blown in from elsewhere. They dance together for twelve hours. In silence and blindfolded they match each other footstep for footstep, keeping perfect time. Eventually others step in to join them in a mesmeric shared dance against failure and exhaustion. A social dance made against the passing of time.
