Contemporary Dance at the Blue Elephant

Posted on November 24, 2010

The Blue Elephant Theatre presents a double bill of Clichéd, by Sebastian Rex Dance Group, with the short new play Mind the Gap, written by Rex and performed by theatre company Acting Like Mad.

Clichéd, choreographed by Lisette Foster for a company of ten dancers, sets out to strip clichés of their old meanings and give them new ones, with music including Mendelssohn’s Wedding March, the Can Can and Bernard Hermann’s theme from Pyscho. Mind the Gap shows two young people trying to find their place in the world.

This double bill runs from December 7–18 at the Blue Elephant Theatre, London. To book tickets, call 020 7701 0100 or see
