Joseph Moncure Marchs poem, The Wild Party, has been the inspiration for everything from films to plays. Rosie Kay Dance is now making it their own with a lively interpretation that could only be spun from the imagination of Rosie Kay herself.
With live musicians to accompany them, we watch and become involved as the decadent party thrown by the jealous and self-absorbed vaudevillian couple, Queenie and Burrs, gradually rages out of control. The lines are blurred between life and performance as these dynamic dancers (and talented actors I might add) occasionally call each other by their character names and occasionally by their real names.
The choreography is nothing groundbreaking, but somehow it doesnt seem to matter. The Rosie Kay Dance Company has created something new out of something old, and there is no doubt that whatever it is, its exciting to be a part of.
