local dancing invites you to dance local dances for pleasure, accompanied by live keyboard music. They include dances such as the Fairy Dance, Procession, the 5-5-5-5-5 Dance, the Summertime Sadness Dance, the Refund Dance. Using queer transmission and speculative instant tradition as methods, we imagine popular group dances that may have travelled through time and became non-binary and unpaired. Detached from a national narrative, the dances pretend to be local wherever they are. They are all proposals of how to come together in dancing, and how the repetition and routine of a circular choreography can hold us.
