Before dance became art, before it tried to express anything, before it was a ceremony or a technique, it was a game. Let’s be frank: the games we like the best are often the ones we probably shouldn’t be playing in the first place. Games that have consequences and risks, games that are more than just a game, games that make our head spin and can break our heart … In GAME THEORY, Monten looks deeply at some of the building blocks of play: freedom and rules, ritual and surprise, adrenaline and flow. The result is an aesthetically rigorous composition with ample room for freedom and joy.
