Developed in New York, London and Brisbane, choreographer and dancer Joseph Simons brings his exciting new performance to Brisbane Powerhouse from Wed 31 July, 100 Years Of The History Of Dance As Told By One Man In 60 Minutes With An Energetic Group Finale.

Bursting at the seams with fascinating facts, naughty stories and dance moves to die for, this energetic performance, directed by Emma Canalese, follows Jacob, a schoolboy presenting a report on the topic of his own choice. Not to be extra or anything, but Jacob has decided to cover 100 Years of the History of Dance! Exploring the lives of influential choreographers, including Martha Graham, Merce Cunningham, Bob Fosse, Roudolf Nureyev, Pina Bauch, Gene Kelly and Paula Abdul, Jacob not only talks about them, but demonstrates their signature style at the same time!
