Audience Quote

Join Shuffle’s dancefloor democracy. This new, interactive dance work celebrates club culture and places street dance centre stage, under the direction of legendary choreographer Lea Anderson.

Based on the chance play order of an iPod Shuffle and highlighting the call and response relationship between club dance floors and the DJ, Shuffle invites the audience to vote for sections to shuffle or rewind. Combining dynamic hip hop and street dance forms from three thrilling dance artists and a dance floor soundtrack, Shuffle takes audiences on a time-bending trip through a night out, presenting moments whose order and length are selected by them. Interruptible and interactive, Shuffle contains the element of surprise; gratifying, thrilling, and risky by turns.

Directed by Lea Anderson (The Chomondeleys, The Featherstoneaughs), Shuffle showcases the world-class dance skills of young dancers from the street dance and battle scenes; house sensation Frankie Johnson, Chiara Stella Sapurito aka Mash, and Lewis Norman. Conceived as an antidote to a corrupted democracy, Shuffle creates a benign club-culture republic. Born from a desire to find different ways for people to help shape dance performance, Shuffle requires no expertise. There's no learning of dance moves, no potential to feel self-conscious, no right or wrong way to vote, and no complicated app to download. Just be ready to play along. And trust the DJ.
