The multi-skilled members of Kundle Cru share a passion for urban dance and circus. From their collective desire to explore new perspectives, something distinctive and different has emerged. With exceptional flair, they have experimented with form to create a genre-defying hybrid movement language. In combination with music, it becomes a versatile and innovative vehicle for telling stories.
In Blame Game this international company of innovators explores the dirty politics of scapegoating. See what they have to say about the finger pointing world we live in today.
In a change to advertised programme, unfortunately the outdoor performances have been cancelled in response to latest public health guidelines from NI Executive. However, there will be a special filmed version of Blame Game, which will be broadcast on Saturday 24 October at 6pm on BIAF YouTube channel and Facebook, available for 1 week.
Filmed specially for an online audience you will experience Blame Game from the centre of the stage. From here, the artists’ exceptional flair and skills can be seen up close. Fully immersed within the action, the ever shifting texture of the piece will be revealed right in front of your eyes.
