Not seen in London since 1985, '80s wild child Karole Armitage returns to Dance Umbrella with a world premiere and the revival of a seminal classic. Striking, elegant and dramatic, Two Theories - Quantum & String is performed by the company of ten captivatingly brilliant dancers, and explores the poetry underlying the pillars of 20th-century theoretical physics. Armitage's signature work from 1981, Drastic-Classicism, is performed to Rhys Chatham's clangorous score, played live by five guitarists amidst the dancers. When this outrageously high-energy performance premiered in New York 30 years ago, it shocked audiences with its audacity, pairing classical movement with the raw energy of punk's wall of sound. Today its impact is no less striking.Choreographer Karole Armitage.
