MOXIE Brawl is the award-winning inclusive dance theatre company led by Irish choreographer and artistic director Sarah Blanc. As part of this year’s Bualadh Bos Children’s Festival Moxie Brawl presents its latest family friendly show ‘Punk Alley’ playing at
Lime Tree Theatre on Tuesday October 10 as part of an extensive Ireland and UK tour.
Punk Alley is a show for everyone that asks the big questions and gives young people the space to explore what is most important to them.
Set at an exclusive rehearsal for the fictional Lazurr Tuts punk band, audiences will be invited to dance, sing, sign, and shake as they follow the six dancers and musicians on a journey of self- expression and exploration of what matters most to us all in a safe environment where everyone is equal.
Full of heart, this vibrant interactive show will see young people join in a joyful protest for what is right through song, placards, and music and unleash their inner anarchist. Each performance is fully ISL interpreted and relaxed to be as inclusive as possible so everyone can experience the joy of the Lazurr Tuts.
Punk Alley was conceived and choreographed by Sarah Blanc, with music direction and original compositions by alternative theatre composer Quiet Boy and lyrics, story and music contributions by punk poet and theatre maker Brigitte Aphrodite.
Of Punk Alley Sarah Blanc said: “With the world pretty much in chaos I wanted to create a fun, engaging show for young people. I feel that young people are going to have to be the warriors of the future and be politically engaged like no generation before. Punk Alley is about being free, finding your voice and knowing that your voice is important no matter what age you are. I’m excited for audiences to experience this world we’ve created and hope they enjoy being part of it too.”
Punk Alley will be performed by Sarah Blanc (she/her), Amarnah Ufuoma Cleopatra (she/her), Kitty Fedorec (they/them), Laura Jones (she/her), Maria Rodriguez (she/her) with ISL Interpreter Shelley Gibson (she/her).
Suitable for the whole family, including younger children, but some elements may be most engaging for those aged 5+.
