Dancers in museums moaning and leaning against walls, pestering visitors with boilerplate philosophical questions and busting their knee caps on punishing concrete floors. This was the thorn in the side which inspired Relational Stalinism – The Musical, a maximalist showcase of the many ways in which language and movement can combine to disorient us. Mixing micro-choreography, exhaustive feats of reading in 7/4 time, operatic luggage handling, call center language-bending games, and wicked satire of the Immaterial Turn, this absurdist show commands you to “enter the rumbling chiasmus between the real and the ideal.”

Relational Stalinism – The Musical was originally commissioned by Witte de With Center for Contemporary Art, Rotterdam in collaboration with A.P.E (Art Projects Era). Residency support provided by Gibney Dance.
