Askoop is an indulgent dance-cabaret that reveals the iconic shopping trolley as more than just a wheeled metal structure. It fills. It empties. It waits to become … a cart-horse for the middle-class – a sturdy companion for the barefoot beggar. With satirical humour and pathos Underground Dance Theatre calls to question ideals of fulfilment and the limits of greed. What does it mean to be rich, what does it mean to be poor? Askoop is a dance with desire…. an empty serenade… a modern day redemption song.
Choreographed and directed by Cilna Katzke and Thalia Laric
