To Be Straight With You
A few years ago former-DV8 performer Liam Steel and his company Stan Won’t Dance brought their show Sinner to NYC which John Rockwell called “British physical theater at its finest” in the NY Times.
Well, now we get to see the source of this intense, physical theater when DV8 comes to Montclair this weekend. Don’t miss it! DV8‘s To Be Straight With You is a poetic and unflinching exploration of tolerance, intolerance, religion and sexuality. It incorporates dance, text, documentary, animation and film.
Lloyd Newson’s DV8 Physical Theatre has won sixteen awards over the last three years for its stage and film works, including a Prix Italia and the Rose D’Or. The company’s latest work, To Be Straight With You, is currently touring the UK, USA and Europe.
“DV8 AND ITS ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, LLOYD NEWSON, HAVE ALWAYS BEEN WELL AHEAD OF THE GAME. NOW, JUST AT A POINT WHEN OTHERS ARE CATCHING UP, NEWSON REINVENTS THE RULES.” – Lyn Gardner, The Guardian
