Cupid’s Revenge comedy show to bring ‘joyous dance explosion’ to Lancaster

A show combining physical theater, comedy and dance arrives in Lancaster in October.

Cupid’s Revenge by New Art Club duo Tom Roden, solo artist, director and choreographer and Pete Shenton, senior lecturer in dance and performing arts, come to the Lancaster Arts Center on October 26.

The hour-long physical poem will be performed against a backdrop centered around a two-meter-high love heart that crashed to earth.

The show focuses on rhythmic repetition and spoken text to highlight the peculiarities and commonalities of love.

Pete and Tom have been doing genre-defying shows together since 1998 and their latest project, which was planned for three years after the tour was delayed by coronavirus, signifies a new direction for the couple as they refocus on their roots and their training in choreography.

It’s funny, heartbreaking, serious and absurd and is accompanied by the original score by Gareth Williams

Both performers said, “Cupid’s Revenge is a joyous explosion of dancing against forces masquerading as love.

“A look at love in today’s context, both big and small, where it really is and what it really means”.
