Following their Uk debut at Mayfest, Bristol, the weekend of 19th and 20th May 2018 brings Contact Gonzo to the shores of Weston-super-Mare!
Imagine a kind of dance that’s also a martial art, that is also a bit like a game that reminds you of something you’ve seen on the internet, or in a slapstick film, or on the streets.
Contact Gonzo bring their unique, playful, jaw-dropping physical style to Bristol. It’s violent and tender, very funny and very serious.
The show you’ll see involves performers from Contact Gonzo and Weston-super-Mare working together to create a once-in-a-lifetime encounter.
Based in Osaka, Japan, Contact Gonzo were founded in 2006 and made their name on YouTube. Contact Gonzo is both their collective name, and the name of the practice developed by Masaru Kakio and Yuya Tsukahara.
They have made work in Singapore, New York, Moscow, Reykjavik and Budapest among other places.
You can see Contact Gonzo at Theatre Tropicana on 19th May at 7.30pm and 20th May at 2pm.
Contact Gonzo is supported using public funding by Arts Council England through its Strategic Touring Fund.
