Jump

 

TARGET GROUP: 7 years and older
DURATION: Approx. 35-40 minutes
Trapped in the Air with Your Head Hanging Upside Down
How would you deal with the law of gravity, mediocracy, and winter depression at the same time? You would get a specially designed large bouncy-cushion and begin exploring it. Throw yourself on the side, throw yourself on the head, fall on your ass. Jump alone, jump together. On earth, as it is in heaven.
.
Something is doomed to go wrong when the dancers play Simon Says and the floor is lava. They jump over, under and into each other. Call them nitwits, hoptimists or just someone with their heads up in the clouds.
.
JUMP is suited for many different venues: a gym, a community house foyer, outdoors ... with the audience seated around the AirFloor as in an arena, or in a horseshoe. JUMP can also be performed in a traditional theater.
Introducing millenials to dance
Our recent national tour with the critically acclaimed performance JUMP, once again confirmed Uppercut Dance Theater as a company, which has a great appeal for adolescents and young adults (especially the age group 15-25). For many young people Uppercut Dance Theater’s performances act as an introduction to the performing arts. This is due, among other things, to the fact that we deal with issues that young people recognize from their daily lives.
