The Populars

Wed 31 Jul 2019 to Sun 25 Aug 2019

Appearing at SUMMERHALL at Edinburgh Fringe 2019, 31 July - 25 August

Join The Populars – four young performers who are throwing a dance party for a divided nation. They are looking to the future and wondering how it will feel when we get there. They have questions for you, things on their minds, and a playlist of great songs that tug at the memory and the muscle fibres. Tell them what you think of the atmosphere, where you last danced your heart out, and who you reckon is the coolest.

Expect sweat, sequins, and a thoughtfully upbeat take on what unites or divides us in these uncertain times.

"Volcano like to make theatre for people who aren't typical audiences: forceful, dynamic and visually impressive. After having a crack at Chekhov, they are going for the toughest nut to crack in a dance party about Brexit. In all of the uncertainty, this is a chance to dance away the chaos and imagine another way to be together and leap across the divides that are hemming humans into their imaginative and ideological cages."
