Young men’s contemporary dance company FuzzyLogic perform a thriller at the Theater Royal in Winchester
A contemporary dance company for young men will perform their new show in a unique performance at a heritage theater in Winchester.
FuzzyLogic, Southampton’s nationally renowned men’s contemporary dance company, will present their new show in an exclusive performance at the Theater Royal, Winchester.
The energetic new show titled The Doorman combines storytelling with dance and contact work. Starting August 20, The Doorman follows the story of, “Ten hopeful strangers, each with their own unique story to tell, arrive at a mysterious door. Here, The Doorman guards the front door of what they want most, but the door will only open to those who prove themselves worthy. As each struggles with their own demons, fears, and desires, the hopefuls attempt to uncover the secret of the gate.
The show originally premiered in 2021 but was postponed due to covid. FuzzyLogic, now in its 22nd year, is ZoieLogic Dance Theater’s flagship youth company and was recently seen on the BBC’s Dance Passions programme.
Zoie Golding MBE, Artistic Director, said: “The boys’ engagement with dance, their training and with each other, especially during the online sessions during the pandemic, has been nothing short of amazing. Their wish was a main stage show and they went out of their way to make it happen – I couldn’t be prouder! If you want to be inspired and wowed by the dance talent Southampton’s young men have to offer, book your tickets and we look forward to seeing you there!
Led by the Artistic Director, the dance company has been creating performances and working with professional and non-professional dancers for over 20 years to challenge perceptions of dance.
In addition to The Doorman’s performance, a live Q&A with the dancers and founder Zoie and a screening of a short film from FuzzyLogic’s innovative dance film Grab will take place.
Among the 10 boys who will perform, Rambert School student and former company member Kai Harvey has returned to join the company specifically for the show after his first year of training at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance.
The show will start at 7.30pm on Saturday 20 August at the Theater Royal in Jewry Street. Tickets costing £10 are available from the box office at theatreroyalwinchester.co.uk/whats-on/fuzzylogics-doorman.
The performance was supported by Arts Council England, Esmée Fairbairn and the Culture Recovery Fund.
FuzzyLogic was ZoieLogic’s first youth dance company, established in 2000 for boys ages 12-18. The company has since developed FuzzyClear for ages 8-25 with autism and other sensory differences and FuzzyVision for children ages 7-12. All groups meet on Tuesday evenings during term time at The Marlands in central Southampton.
ZoieLogic Dance Theater also works with specific schools and communities to improve the accessibility of dance.
