Arriving directly from Switzerland is Game Theory – a fast-paced, funny and playful dance celebration of play, sport, big emotions, and the highs and lows of playing games! This season will have you looking at dance from a whole new perspective.

Before dance became art, it was a game. Everyone loves a game…

Game Theory comes to China after delighting audiences across Europe. In this playful and joyous dance performance, explore the building blocks of play and games - big emotions, freedom and rules, adrenaline and flow.

Gaming is a source of inspiration for Joshua Monten and his dancers. For the creation of Game Theory they focused on the spontaneous beauty of movements that arise in the flow of an intensely played game. Be inspired by the language of sport and competitive games – with the dancers playfully moving through capoeira, table tennis, and Twister!

The games we like the best are often the ones we probably shouldn’t be playing in the first place. Games that have consequences and risks, games that are more than just a game, games that make our heads spin and can break our hearts.
