Since its inception in 2002, Danse Perdue, "lost dance,” has served as a performance arts company whose projects are rooted in the exploration of spiritual and physical struggle, in crisis. Internal, millennial and universal crises. There is a high regard for social alchemy, for revolution – no matter how useless, and whatever the means and intentions. Danse Perdue creates pieces that draw from fine, classical and outlaw arts aesthetics, from mental and social illnesses, from psychological and transgressive literature. Danse Perdue’s performances shun the familiar and always reflect uncertainty and inevitability; the ambiguities of nature, philosophy, and ethics. Danse Perdue’s work concerns illumination, possession, and transmutation – mutations of intimacy; the ceaseless birth and death of microorganisms writhing within surges of passion and violence; the impossible knowledge that we are all inextricably linked in the unspeakable; the emotive currents inside atrocities; murder in the eye of the lover; the romance of ruins; the theater of our dead.Danse Perdue has founded Teatro de la Psychomachia in SoDo Seattle, a performance and teaching space aimed at fostering transgressive and experimental work. Open Butoh classes are Mondays and Fridays, 6:30-9pm. Danse Perdue have performed and taught workshops in the United States and in Europe.
These classes are held at our community space "Teatro de la Psychomachia", 1534 1st Ave S, Seattle, WA 98134.
