Stacked Wonky is a contemporary dance company. It has built its reputation through a desire to make work in unusual places for an audience unfamiliar with dance. ?401 pieces' begins with the introduction of a discrete audience of 50 in to the basement of Purves & Purves after the shop has shut. Un-ushered and free to explore, the audience may select their own pathways and viewing positions in, on and amongst a peculiar debris field of furniture and objects. In the floating/detached] world of ?401 pieces', six dancers delicately and variously explore the relationship between people and objects, asking how those relationships and the areas that contain them become emotionally charged. Drawing from ideas of salvage and conservation, the dancers splinter and congregate to tell, and re-tell, the stories behind retrieved objects of daily life. ?401 pieces' fulfils Stacked Wonky's commitment to make intimate, intricate work for a mobile audience that addresses the layering/slippage] and subtlety of the performative act. It also illustrates a determination to develop quirky and exciting opportunities for the creative and commercial sectors to overlap, thus redefining mutually beneficial relationships between the arts and business. In this instance, Stacked Wonky has received support and guidance from government funded Arts & Business. Stacked Wonky Dance Company - 401 Pieces website
