Bon 4 Bon will not be performed on Mondays.
Guided by prize-winning Israeli choreographer Eyal Dadon, four real-life brothers take to the stage in a literally moving story of memories and mangoes. The result is a smart serving of fresh, engaging dance by a sparky young Taiwanese company that’s plainly ready to take on the world.
Founded in 2011, Chang produces only one work per year. Premiered in 2017, Bon 4 Bon is the first in which the siblings perform together using material that arose directly from improvisations centred round their individual experiences of being related.
Featuring a soundtrack that includes tracks by Paul McCartney and Bon Iver, this is a truly touching and humorous look at the slippery rhythms and habitual behaviours of family.
