Dancing into Dorset

CONTEMPORARY dance company New Art Club brings Cupid’s Revenge, a new comedy piece, exploring the idea of love, to Swanage and Sturminster Newton with Artsreach in May.

The show looks at love in a disposable world, in a world where love is used to sell us everything from plug-in cars to yoghurt… where did real love go?

Cupid’s Revenge is a joyful, physical and verbal outburst against the forces that masquerade as love. And it asks, what is love? Is it the mythical love that drives the creation of the universe and everything in it, romantic love; love between friends; love between you and the people you love. Sad, funny and reflective, it is not a story but it holds lots of stories inside it. In that way it is like you. It has a flickering heart that has crashed to earth.

Catch New Art Club with Artsreach at the Mowlem Theatre, Swanage, on Friday 13th May, and the Exchange at Sturminster Newton on Saturday 14th; both performances are at 7.30pm.
