Memory Palace is a performance about dancing.
Memory Palace is a performance about dancing together.
Memory Palace is about remembering what it feels like to dance together.
Minimalist, funny and physically exuberant, Memory Palace is a contemporary dance performance that explores the deep connections between muscle memory, music and dancing. Drawing on a wide palette of references including folk, swing, club, concert and line dancing, the piece invites both the performers and the audience to consider their personal dancing histories.
