Nicola Gunn – 'Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster'

Nicola Gunn remounts her beautiful and bizarre one-woman show about the quandaries of having a moral conscience in an increasingly complex world

Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster falls within the weird and wonderful category of dance theatre, pushing the boundaries of what we typically expect that genre to look like.

Co-devised by Gunn and choreographer Jo Lloyd, Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is inspired by an incident the former had in Ghent, when she saw a man throwing rocks at a duck.

Over the course of 70 minutes, we take a journey through Gunn's experience and her subsequent reflections on the complex morality of the situation: what are the repercussions of intervening?

All the while, her narrative is matched with increasingly frenetic choreography that often looks more like physical exercise.

Beautiful, bizarre, funny – set aside your preconceptions for this one.

Piece for Person and Ghetto Blaster is part of Dance Massive 2017.
