Artistically we’re interested in the human at the heart of the skilled mover; in fact after observing the performer for even a minute, we want to have become closer to who they are as an individual. We don’t want a carbon copy of what we already have, that’s not what Northern Rascals is about. We believe that The individuality and authenticity of our performers is what makes our work special. All in all, dancing for the sake of dancing without a glimpse of you means nothing to us; so come on, one more time with meaning!
