Rococo Blood by Jim Ennis & Jessica Cohen
First presented in 1999 by Earthfall
cast size:6
synopsis:
"...thrilling, the performances are exhilaratingly accomplished and exciting, fascinating and impressive."
The Guardian

Created by the award winning director-choreographer team, Jessica Cohen and Jim Ennis and designed by Mike Brookes,  ROCOCO BLOOD fuses superb radical dance with exceptional live music and stunning visual imagery in a dynamic dance theatre work. Memories of first fights and first love are unmasked as extreme dance and live music spanning hip-hop, indie and classical, expose the tyrannies within human relationships and tell of the personal histories and tensions in a fusion of tenderness, violence, pathos and humour.

The company trained with Cardiff based professional boxing coach, Clive Williams, and developed a style which mixes new wave dance with Muhammad All’s ‘poetry in motion’. Break-dance and boxing, rapping and ranting, guitars, trumpet and hip-hop combine to make ROCOCO BLOOD an unmissable piece of total theatre shot with sharp social comment.
