About Dance Nation

Somewhere in America, away from the bright lights, a group of young teen girls prepare for the most important event of their lives – a dance show contest. But all the anxieties and confusions of the adult world come sashaying on stage, revealing a dog-eat-dog drama. The girls are played by adult women, as if they’re reliving past agonies and triumphs.

This is a comic play of memory and feminist power, and a subtly subversive exploration of the time of life when the demons get in.

This came out of America and has taken the world by storm. Theatrically playful, unapologetically ratbaggy, with a great ensemble of adult performers playing the teen dancers, this one promises to be as intriguing as it is entertaining. – Eamon Flack, Artistic Director
