West Coast Premiere
The radical DV8 never shies away from the taboo. In its daring To Be Straight With You, artistic director Lloyd Newson leads a multi-ethnic cast in a poetic but unflinching exploration of tolerance, intolerance, religion and sexuality. Drawing on 85 interviews—with the pious and apostate, straight and gay, activist and mere passer-by—Newson merges dance with spoken word, recorded sound, video and animation. The result is a controversial piece that demands to know how modern society will reconcile faith and human rights.
DV8 Physical Theatre was formed in 1986 and has been led since its inception by Lloyd Newson. The company has produced 16 highly acclaimed dance pieces, which have toured internationally, and four award-winning films for television.
