Hold Me Closer Tony Danza | Metro Arts

January 24, 2023 @ 7:30 pm - January 28, 2023 @ 10:00 pm

A study of misunderstanding that seeks to unify through limited perceptions.

Get ready for an immersive dance-theatre work that asks the audience to select a side, show their true colours and get ready to dance-off as if their lives depend on it. There is no right or wrong, only dance.

Deeply seductive with a satirical edge, Hold Me Closer Tony Danza confronts our modern life through the subversion of its pop sensibilities. In a world driven by information overload, it asks how we can still connect with each other when we feel so far apart.

Reflecting a post-truth world and a modern minefield of potential misrepresentations, Hold Me Closer Tony Danza attempts to reconcile an awkward reality through a partnered choreography of discomfort, lack of coordination and inappropriate dynamics.

 A commonly misheard song lyric contains a deeper proposition about how we form meaning and a provocation that perhaps our understanding of the world is intrinsically flawed.

Metro Arts is excited to showcase the premiere season of The Farm’s newest work, Hold Me Closer Tony Danza, taking pop music, dance and theatre to its limits at the club. Just see if you can get this one out of your head!
