Club Night

A noisy smoke-filled small-town disco. There are no parents or teachers, only young people. We see them dancing in what reminds one of a video clip. If the sound is cool, the dance is sheer energy: it's exciting, passionate, wild. In Club Night the performers of X.IDA, who, one is tempted to say, are all old enough to know and to know better, explore what 'hitting the dance floor' really means - the whole lot of things that happen when we drink too much, kiss too much and dance all night long. The highs and the hangover - nothing is left out in this outstanding production. Modern dance at its best, the piece achieves a perfect blend of dance and music, from Chopin to the Bee Gees and Hard Rock. X.IDA evolved out of the successful "easy pieces project" of the IDA - Institute for Dance Arts at the Bruckner Conservatoire Linz and has been hugely successful on the international dance scene. Club Night was created in co-operation with British choreographer Charlotte Vincent.
