Bad Blood

About Bad Blood

Description

Dancing at an extremely athletic and emotionally visceral level, Bad Blood, reveals the power and magnetic pull of courtship rites, ownership and sex. Brilliant and brutal at times, the seven dancers leapfrog over one another, hurl and fling themselves at each other, ending up in fierce and violent embraces. In this ballet, there is a desperate and futile search for connection through physical impact.
