Join Ian Johnson - Scotland's leading learning-disabled artist - and Gary Gardiner as they hit Chats Palace legendary dancefloor in this delicate, dapper and downright hilarious exploration into what it really means to be a 'dancer'. With a blistering soundtrack careering from Kylie to Nick Cave, they will attempt to understand what it is about dance that makes them feel most alive. Expect outrageously camp jerks and thrusts... and complete stillness. Dancer was originally co-created by the late Adrian Howells' during his year as Arches' Artist in Residence at Glasgow's Touchbase, a resource ran by Sense Scotland offering a range of fully accessible facilities for disabled people, business, charities, community and the public. This updated version was an Unlimited commission in 2014 and played to sold out audiences at Southbank Centre (London), Fierce Festival (Birmingham), the People Dancing festival (Cardiff) and as part of the Made in Scotland Showcase at the Edinburgh Fringe 2016.
