Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music

Extremely Bad Dancing to Extremely French Music

Karl Jay-Lewin & Matteo Fargion
Funny, sad and rebellious, the show spans the overrated, the understated and the personal. It ranges in temperament and emotion from extremely calm and extremely harmonic, to extremely loud and extremely vulgar. The live music, text and dance duo challenge and confound audience assumptions and expectations as they flip between the absurdly humorous and quietly poignant. 

As well as having the best name ever – who could resist? – the performance was a joy to encounter … I cannot think when I have laughed more! Susan Christie, Inverness Old Town Arts

About the artists:
Matteo Fargion is a critically acclaimed composer who works in dance and theatre. He is known particularly for his work with Jonathan Burrows and Siobhan Davies and performs widely across Europe. Karl Jay-Lewin is an independent choreographer who uses the inherent emotionality of movement to create non-literal physical narratives. Working from his base in Findhorn, Scotland, Jay-Lewin has performed at the Edinburgh Fringe and has been an associate artist of The Place Theatre, his work described as optimistic, evoking a sense of simplicity and humanity, often rigorous in quality but with an off-beat, quirky and mischievous nature. Composer and performer Tim Parkinson joins Jay-Lewin as pianist for this performance.
