The work in this second solo by Michelle Hyland is a response to the investigation of the Dance Mania social phenomena of the 14th – 17th Century, where people would dance themselves into exhaustion over days and nights. One theory is they were dancing to relieve themselves of stress and put the poverty of the period out of their minds. Hyland explores the idea of the contemporary music festival being an escape from our electronic worlds and a chance to release the stress of our modern lifestyle.
