The body and the soul are traditionally perceived as separate entities within Western culture. However, Beate Peter will argue that dance has the potential to unite them. Drawing on Carl Gustav Jung, who distinguishes between personal unconscious and collective unconscious, she will argue that dance allows us to access our collective unconscious and consequently, a more fully discovered self.

Accessing the unconscious through dance is commonly practised within tribal societies, particularly in shamanic dances, in which a demon is thought to speak through an individual who is being possessed. In such a case, the dancer could be seen as expressing an internal voice, for example their own self and soul, rather than an external demonic force. Dance provides an opportunity to discover our self more completely, embracing the unconscious part of our identities through the physicality of our bodies.

Peter’s research in electronic dance music argues the same. Electronic music facilitates this kind of dance-discovery. Its musical features allow the release of emotions within a community of dancers, where the body becomes the soul, and the individual becomes the collective.

Neil Young once sang, ‘It's better to burn out than fade away.’ Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Jim Morrison all exited this mortal coil at an early age, attaining mythical cultural and immortal status that only death can provide. Their demise was originally viewed as occupational tragedies, victims to the excesses of drug and alcohol that sadly often are a part of the rock and roll lifestyle. Kurt Cobain’s suicide in 1994, however, highlighted a strange commonality that these icons shared: they all had been just 27 years old when they passed away.

Why We Love the 27 Club examines the phenomena of the death at this specific age, and why seemingly so many of our most creative and inspiring artists seem to burn out, as Young so prophetically said, at this particular moment in their career. What implication does this age hold, both for the artist and for our culture? Why are we- the fans left behind- enthralled with the myth iteself? How does an early and heartbreaking passing of some of our most beloved stars impact the perceived assumptions for our own lives? And is the ‘27 Club’ even a real thing, or simply a strange coincidence that has been blown out of context by our own fear of mortality? Why We Love the 27 Club delves into these issues by exploring the complicated relationships between celebrity, death, artistry and expectation, providing a unique and provocative investigation into how technology, media and humanistic need for guidance are forming novel ways of expressing value, forging self and finding significance in an uncertain world.

Juju's Presents: ACT
Actor- Chorus- Text Training

Juju's proudly presents the ACT training program, in collaboration with Moon Fool Theatre Company.

The ACT training workshops, developed and run by Moon Fool founder and Director Anna-Helena McLean, provide actors with drop in sessions, regular training, and the opportunity to engage in intensive workshops and residencies before participating in in-house productions at Juju's.

This approach to theatre effectively combines the native folkloric, esoteric, classical and contemporary in a comprehensive, accessible and mind-blowing way.

'Company' ethos is encouraged in participants, with trust, mutuality, and a sense of communality emerging through collective practice.

The method: ACT is a learned method of interweaving music, movement, poetry, and story in any given spatial location. The training exercises in musicality and physicality incorporate:
-  Gardzienice Company methodology
-  Acrobatic partner and counterbalance techniques
-  The art of gesture with hand, body and chorus
-  Polyphonic singing of indigenous folk and gypsy music from across the Globe, as well as original composition
-  Dynamic speech work with physically charged interpretation

The ACT ensemble is currently developing a performance for this year's East London Fringe Festival. More details to be announced soon.

" A world class theatre creator /  Director with an uncanny ability to synthesize her music and physical actor training into full out, lush production." -  Kristen Schmidt, Founding Director, Walkabout Theatre, Chicago

" Moon Fool has fused together a unique theatrical practice that is proven ground-breaking and world class" -  Dexter Bullard, Head of Graduate Acting, The Theatre School, DePaul University

" Ensemble work at its very best" -  Kevin Green, New City Stage
