Lewys Holt - Empty Orchestra
A dance show choreographed by Lewys Holt that explores the pains and pleasures of karaoke.
Three dancers - Luke Divall, Lewys Holt, Inari Hulkkonen - perform their favourite karaoke hits. As each dancer takes their turn at the mic, the remaining two take to the space, becoming backing dancers, lip-syncing and encouraging each other into the spotlight.
Through the revealing act of singing, Empty Orchestra creates a safe space to embrace both the wild, diva-like highs and deep, uncomfortable feelings of cringe inherent to karaoke.
See the pains, pleasures and coping strategies of each dancer unfold as they share their joy, timidity and power. Featuring classics ranging from Dolly Parton’s Jolene to Simon and Garfunkel’s Sound of Silence.
And yes - you’re allowed to sing along.
