The Movements is a high-octane theatre/dance spectacular, and the economics class you never had in school. It’s a show about the global economy in the form of a precisely choreographed 90-minute workout routine. Accompanied by a soaring musical score and multi-layered video design, four (4) performers exhaust themselves, as they convert statistics into aerobic movement before your eyes. Covering everything from GDP and the WHO, to wealth inequality and inflation, The Movements examines the mind-boggling complexity of these hot topics in a way that is accessible and endlessly engaging.
