100 Years of the
History of Dance

As told by one man in 60 minutes

10th September, 2019

Written and Performed by Joseph Simons
Commissioned by R. Martin Chavez
Development supported by Queensland Theatre and Mad Dance House
Original music will be composed by Italian film score composer Enrico Melozzi
Representation and Tour Coordination by Nicholas Clark Management Pty Ltd (NCM)

Following up from his hit solo show “First Things First” which toured Australia in 2015, dance and comic maverick Joseph Simons returns with his next solo adventure exploring the last century of developments in dance.

This one-man play follows Jacob: a schoolboy challenged with presenting a school report on the history of dance. Exploring the lives of influential choreographers including Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Bob Fosse, Rudolf Nureyev, Pina Bausch, Lloyd Newson, Gene Kelly and Paula Abdul, Jacob not only talks about them, but demonstrates their signature styles at the same time! Ballet, Jazz, Hip Hop, Modern and Contemporary dance are all addressed, as Jacob questions the difference between ‘influence’ and ‘plagiarism’, and begins to question his own legacy. Original music for the show is composed by Italian film score composer Enrico Melozzi.
