Blame Game

24 October at 6pm, Online

Mateusz Szczerek, marking the culmination of his year as Dancer in Residence at Rua Red, Blame Game will premiere at Belfast International Arts Festival on 24 October. Join us for a screening of a newly commissioned film about the project by Alice Underwood and a behind the scenes look at the creation of the work on the 24 October at 6pm.

Matt and the multi-skilled members of Kundle Cru share a passion for urban dance and circus. From their collective desire to explore new perspectives, something distinctive and different has emerged. With exceptional flair, they have experimented with form to create a genre-defying hybrid movement language. In combination with music, it becomes a versatile and innovative vehicle for telling stories.

In Blame Game this international company of innovators explores the dirty politics of scapegoating. See what they have to say about the finger pointing world we live in today.

In association with Rua Red & Belfast International Arts Festival, produced by Crying Out Loud.

With support from Arts Council Ireland; La Verrerie d’Alès Pole National Cirque Occitanie; CircusStad Rotterdam; Cheptelalaikoum France; Het Klooster Netherlands; Karlsruhe Atoll Festival Germany; Redbridge Drama Centre London and South Dublin Council.

Conceived by Mateusz Szczerek and Alessio Motta and devised with company members Louiseanne Wong, Liza van Brakel, Jack Bain, Greg Szczerek and Timothy Waliggo Kakeeto.
