John is a new verbatim dance-theatre work by Lloyd Newson, Artistic Director of DV8 Physical Theatre. Newson interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions, initially about love and sex. One of those men was John. What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. Years of crime, drug use and struggling to survive lead John on a search in which his life converges with others, in an unexpected place, unknown by most. JOHN authentically depicts real-life stories, where movement and spoken word combine to create an intense, moving and poignant theatrical experience. ...and that's why I come here, because it's another door that's opened, you never know where this is gonna lead.

The amazing debut of Wim Vandekeybus and Ultima Vez in 1987 stunned the world of dance. Vandekeybus and composers Thierry de Mey and Peter Vermeersch received the prestigious Bessie Award in New York for this "brutal confrontation of dance and music: the dangerous, combative landscape of What the Body Does Not Remember." 28 years later and with a new cast and live music by contemporary ensemble Ictus, the show still stands as one of the most exciting pieces of dance ever made and is once again on an unmissable world tour. Vandekeybus' first piece of choreography balances on the razor edge of attraction and repulsion. Dancers are driven to act and react at high speed and with split second timing, to each other, and the music. Moments of humour thread through explosions of aggression, fear and danger in this adrenaline-fuelled distinctly physical performance. Running time: 1hr 20mins approx.
