WORKING ON MY NIGHT MOVES

A Wizard of Oz fever dream. A science fiction / science fact / fantasy futurisms / dubstep mashup. Or just some moves in the night.

Night Moves is less occupied with reframing and interrogating familiar debates around feminism and art. Night Moves wants to start from scratch.
— The Pantograph Punch
bold, optimistic and laced with humour
— The 13th Floor
mesmerising and beautiful...visceral and captivating
— Theatrescenes
I’ve never left a show more full of hope. Or more keen to be a feminist astronaut.

Breaking the rules, the patriarchy and the time/space continuum. A search for multiple feminist futurisms, reaching for outer space, inciting a Wizard of Oz fever dream. A gesture to the impossible. An ode to the search for utopia. A science fiction / science fact / fantasy futurisms / dubstep mashup. Or just some moves in the night.

Working On My Night Moves is the latest live art work by award-winning artists Julia Croft and Nisha Madhan, two of the many minds behind hugely successful shows including Medusa, Power Ballad and If There’s Not Dancing at the Revolution, I’m Not Coming.
