About Dance Nation
“Maybe this is the year, this is the moment, this is the dance where your lives will start!”
Somewhere in America, a revolution is coming.
An army of competitive dancers is ready to take over the world, one routine at a time.
With a pre-teen battle for power and perfection raging on and off stage, Dance Nation is a ferocious exploration of youth, ambition and self-discovery.
Winner of the Susan Smith Blackburn Prize and The Relentless Award, Clare Barron’s explosive new play Dance Nation makes its UK debut in summer 2018, directed by Bijan Sheibani.
