"Wired" is a modern dance gospel, investigating and honouring the relation between sound and movement within modern afro-diasporic electronic music and dance traditions, with all its grit and grace. The performance celebrates the genre’s authentic form from past to present, and its emancipatory reason for being, in a soulful soundscape ranging from Hip Hop, soul and R’n’B, to broken beat and house music. Cause and effect are inverted, making the sound created by dance the point of departure. The performance space is inspired by the environment of underground house clubs, with the intimacy that a dark space and warm toned lights provide – spaces that for club dancers are like churches.
