Details

Contagion dramatises the horrors of the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic, which killed more people than the First World War itself. The performance is inspired by the nature and spread of the flu virus, the unseen enemy that mankind was battling within, while engaging in more conventional warfare in the world outside.

Set to an atmospheric soundscape, this dance installation with digital visuals echoes the scientific features of a virus - rapid, random and constantly shape-shifting. Eight female dancers contort and mutate, exploring both the resilience and the vulnerability of the human body. Shobana Jeyasingh is a leading female choreographer and we are eager to welcome her return after her most recent visit to DanceEast as part of Dance Umbrella’s My Dance DNA, which was live streamed to the world from our very own theatre.

Co-commissioned by Shobana Jeyasingh Dance and 14-18 NOW, the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary, with support from the National Lottery through Arts Council England and the Heritage Lottery Fund, and from the Department for Culture Media and Sport.

Shobana Jeyasingh Dance is supported by The Deborah Loeb Brice Donor Advised Fund at CAF America, Garcia Family Foundation, Dr Michael and Anna Brynberg Charitable Foundation, Oak Foundation and Wellcome.
