TTOK is happy to present Fleshy Thud’s new dance performance “Dazzle Ships”
Featuring Kate Story, Sarah McNeilly, Andrew Little and Elizabeth Moody, choreographer Ryan Kerr has based his new show on a 1983 album of the same title by Orchestral Manoeuvers in the Dark. An investigation into the cold war, communication, and secrets.
Bob Stanley in The Guardian wrote: “[The album] contained no obvious hits and soundtracked the cold war at its coldest. No one bought it, mind you, so Dazzle Ships came to be viewed as a heroic failure – the ultimate commercial suicide…[it] entered the charts at No 5, then dropped like a stone.”
