About the Show
An irreverent dance work that asks, can artists compete with the internet?
REFERENCE MATERIAL is a new dance work from choreographer, Alisdair Macindoe, exploring the process and history of dance making in the age of narcissism and digital interdependence. Sitting somewhere between a lecture, a stand-up show, a guided tour and a dance recital, REFERENCE MATERIAL is a chaotic and humorous performance that reflects a world saturated by media technology.
In an effort to salute the historical figures and social icons who have paved the way toward our current privileged performance culture, REFERENCE MATERIAL takes on the impossible task of acknowledging and referencing its own cultural context, unashamedly exposing its own creative process in doing so.
