Hyperactive

“Hyperactive is highly charged, wonderfully high-octane exhibitionistic fun, an entertaining sugar rush for all involved."

- Seona Mac Reamoinnt / The Irish Times



An explosive piece, HYPERACTIVE is a live, high-energy human dance installation with wild street energy, ‘Hyperactive’ is hugely athletic, funny and exciting.Stretching horseplay and dance to the limit,

this high-energy piece features a cast of four outstanding male dancers, whose backgrounds range from Broadway to downtown to street dance.

 

Premiered at Galway Arts Festival 2013 and Dublin Dance Festival 2014, and La MaMa Moves Dance Festival 2015. Irish tour: Visual GB Shaw Carlow, The Dock Arts Centre, Carrick-on-Shannon,  Garage Theatre, Monaghan




Press

"Hyperactive … teeming with dance energy and boyish glee. Under John Scott’s instruction, their red tennis shoes and immaculate whites are soon bearing all the marks of the get-down-and-dirty dance. It is highly charged, wonderfully high-octane exhibitionistic fun, an entertaining sugar rush for all involved."

Seona Mac Reamoinnt/The Irish Times


 “As a writer, I will never keep up with what John Scott's dancers do in HYPERACTIVE …. Scott's sense of funny scrambles over any flimsy barrier... The work embraces transparency and anti-virtuosity in its raucousness, its grin at failure, its refusal to go anywhere near pretty payoff or uplift. ……And four butts are worked off, relentlessly, for the entire fifty minutes”
