NOBODY'S BUSINESS - September 14 2019 @ 7.30pm at the Wakefield Centre

August 16, 2019

Nobody’s Business, driven by the music of jazz greats Jelly Roll Morton and Joe Turner, is a light-hearted look at sexual preferences and stereotypes. Conventional movement characteristics are swapped between genders, with a gay duet anchoring the piece. The content of the work is tame by today’s standards, but in 1980, when the piece was created, the subject matter was regarded as too taboo for the theatre crowd. Danny says, "Back then I would hear that certain presenters didn’t want us to bring 'that gay dance.' Over the years this happened less, but by then I had produced a few dark dances exploring sexuality perhaps prompting presenters to appreciate the accessibility of Nobody’s Business."
