LIKE A PRAYER by choreographer Barnaby Booth and Poetic Disasters Club (Club Guy & Roni’s junior company) is going to De Parade this summer!
In LIKE A PRAYER, together with the Poetic Disasters Club, Barnaby Booth explores the space between darkness, absurdity, and humour. Inspired by the theme of family, and more particularly how attitudes and trauma get passed down through generations, LIKE A PRAYER welcomes you into a haunted house filled with the ghosts that surround and are within us
“Darkness is reached through humour so often, and it’s through making this connection in my own work that I decided to make a dance about ghosts.”
Inspired by Taika and Waititi’s What We Do in the Shadows and Raphael Bob-Waksberg’s Bojack Horseman, Booth dove headfirst into researching silliness, humour, and absurdity with dance… with a twist.
“Like a Prayer”, Madonna’s iconic pop song, plays more of a role than merely the title. It finds its way into the ending of the performance, creating a space for people getting through the unexpected absurdity of life individually, but who sometimes find moments of calm in connecting with each other.
July 28–August 13
August 18–September 3
