An accessible and humorous dance performance in which three dummies hold up a mirror to the clumsiness of our do-it-yourself society. The movement language of the three dummies is impressive thanks to the quick, acrobatic partner work and the physical risks.

Our social lives are governed by countless unwritten rules. Queuing while waiting, bringing cake when it’s your birthday, saying ‘bless you’ when someone sneezes, … It all seems self-evident. In DUMMIES, we see three individuals who are unaware of these rules and find themselves in situations where such knowledge may be useful. All they have left is their instincts. And that could result in funny yet painful situations … They have an equal chance of understanding each other. Or will they clash in their ignorance?

Relevant and recognisable, DUMMIES  playfully demonstrates the absurdity of our customs and gives us a different perspective on what we consider ‘normal’
