Naïve Dance Masterclass is a stand-up and dance-about comedy combining deadpan wordplay and expert physical tomfoolery in a sweet blast of erudite mayhem. Drenched in ecstasy and anguish, ex-contemporary dance star, Matt Rudkin, shares his tale of artistic salvation through the exertions of riot duty training and the love of an immigrant hula-hoopist. Aiming a poke at cultural bumf, this second show from Inconvenient Spoof pays heartfelt homage to those heroic geeks who dance without fear, in asexual abandon, subverting the norms of cool.
WARNING: may contain nudity.
“Hilarious, bizarre and captivating. This is a fantastic and unique take on the harsh realities of life. What it takes to be a human – a dancer… in love.”
***** The Latest Magazine – Rosie Pearson
“…an eloquent parody of the excesses of performance art, and a joyfully liberating way to spend the better part of an hour.”
