BOOK TICKETS

Shrimp Dance is a Butoh dance performance with live music and video art, based on research showing anti-depressants entering the sea through human waste are affecting the behaviour of shrimp. High levels of Prozac cause shrimp to abandon their shadowy habitat and swim towards the light where they’re often eaten. The humans are so sad that the shrimp are going crazy. Shrimp Dance is a meditation on the medicalisation of profound sadness, linking our inner isolation to climate change, eco-anxiety and related crises (waste, ecocide, consumer capitalism and extreme inequality). Your sadness is political.
