Idiot Syncrasy

Igor and Moreno

We started with wanting to change the world with a performance. We felt like idiots.

Then we danced a lot. We jumped. We called on the folk traditions of Sardinia and the Basque Country. We sang. We jumped some more. We committed.

Now we promise to persevere. We promise to be open. We promise to do our best.

Igor and Moreno are two London based dance artists making and presenting work across Europe. They create dance performances to reclaim the role of the theatre as a place for assembly whilst exploring the cathartic properties of live performance.

Idiot-Syncrasy has been touring internationally since its premiere and has been nominated for a National Dance Award, and a Total Theatre Award. It was selected for Aerowaves and the British Council Showcase 2015.

Unmissable! A simple but immersive performance that defies all initial expectations and explanations.

✭✭✭✭✭ Everything Theatre

One of the most stunning, innovative, bold, daring, clever, funny and sexy shows I have seen in years

✭✭✭✭✭ The Quotidian Times

Idiot-Syncrasy is a warm, fabulous and funny show, but it also makes us vividly and unsettlingly aware of the altered states that we and the dancers can undergo during the course of a performance.

Commissioned by The Place and created using funding from Arts Council funding through Grants for the Arts and with support from Yorkshire Dance, Cambridge Junction, Centro per la Scena Contemporanea (Bassano, Italy), Aerowaves, TIR danza and BAD Festival (Bilbao).
