Taiwan Season: Bout
Summerhall Festival - Old Lab
Dance Physical Theatre and Circus
Taiwan's Chang brothers (co-creators of Bon 4 Bon, a five-star hit at the 2018 Fringe) bounce back with a dance that reveals fresh facets of their fraternal relationships and the rich possibilities – and inherent conflicts – of male bonding. Originally inspired by the ritual and physical rhythms of the boxing ring, this simply staged, unpretentiously eloquent new work is the physically deft and thoughtful expression of three contemporary young Asian men who communicate best through their bodies. By exploring their strong, if sometimes strained, personal connections, the Changs once again endear themselves indelibly to us.
