Fight Club is a new piece for a diverse cast of queer, female, male, black, white and Asian dance artists to inhabit the stage. The representation of this diverse society is important for the work, as together the group explore the violence that is part of everyday life, in the family and in society. We are democratic, in that violence is part of all of us.

Fight Club draws upon street fights and riots to form choreographic frameworks, hyper violent landscapes where community and group divisions emerge with chaotic spontaneity, where the mob and violent masculinity stands supreme. The piece is inspired by martial arts gyms, where violence is made aesthetic, into form and sequences, where its chaos can become order, control and discipline. Fight Club wants to emulate the rhythm, repetition and gestures of boxing and video games, such as Street Fighter and X-Men, where violence becomes play, entertainment, childhood memories and escape.
