Jonathan Burrows, Matteo Fargion
Cheap Lecture was commissioned by Cultureel Centrum Maasmechelen and Dans in Limburg and first performed at the Cultureel Centrum Maasmechelen.
The Cow Piece is co-produced by Kaaitheater, Brussels.
Cheap Lecture is a rhythmic spoken performance set to music. In a rant about empty hands, audience, time, repetition and dancing, Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion reflect upon and continue the journey begun in their earlier work. Veering from the philosophical to the humourous and back, the piece gently reveals how the two artists work while drawing us into ever more unexpected digressions. It is accompanied by The Cow Piece, a chaotic meditation upon dance, music and mortality. Cheap Lecture was selected for the 2009 “best of the year” Het Theaterfestival in Brussels.
Jonathan Burrows and Matteo Fargion have created a performance that dances in your head. It's superb
