Walking along the river in a foreign country you see a man throwing stones at a nesting duck. You ask him to stop. He tells you to mind your own business. What do you do?

Presented as a part of Dance Massive, Piece For Person and Ghetto Blaster explores the ethical dilemma of whether to intervene or not, dancing in and out of a tangle of imagined repercussions for how one can potentially become a better person.

Nicola Gunn was last seen on our stage in the furious political satire A Social Service, and she returns with her signature wit, teaming up with choreographer Jo Lloyd, to create a work that is part dance, part theatre, and entirely hypnotic. This is Nicola Gunn at her best: profoundly funny and brilliantly self-scathing.

COMIC GENIUS… GUNN’S TEXT IS INTRICATE AND OFTEN BRILLIANT, FULL OF UNPREDICTABLE DIGRESSIONS AND CURIOUS FACTOIDS. IT’S THE VERBAL EQUIVALENT OF SKIMMING STONES OVER WATER.
