Body Not Fit For Purpose


The uselessness of dancing

Burrows and Fargion offer a chance to see their 2014 Venice Biennale piece Body Not Fit For Purpose, shown last year at the Performatik festival. It is an attempt to reconcile personal politics with the difficulty of saying anything of consequence in a dance performance, all the while revealing the strange permeability of dance to any message that it meets.
