The Emperor’s New Clothes

By Sacha Copland with music by Tristan Carter

Presented by Java Dance Theatre

A high-risk, high-return dance show not for the faint of heart.

Do you find numbers seductive? Have
you ever calculated your own net worth?
Did you take EVERYTHING into account?

Are you brave enough to admit to all your assets and liabilities and look directly at the bottom line?

Come to The Emperor’s New Clothes to witness every organ, nerve and muscle in the human body vibrating. We will offer you outrageous dancing, profit, loss, live music and the deconstruction of power at a price. The economy meets the human body in a tour-de-force danced and spoken by 41-year-old choreographer Sacha Copland. This is a show for lovers of the human body.

CONTENT ADVISORY: nudity, strong language, sexual violence, economics.
