Idiot-Syncrasy
Igor and Moreno

The Urban Dictionary describes “idiotsyncracy” as “any method or procedure based in ritual or dogma that continues by force of momentum beyond the limits of common sense.”

That’s certainly what’s in store when Igor and Moreno take the stage. Launching their performance by singing a Sardinian folk song, they proceed to bounce —literally — for the duration of the piece. Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas say that when they set out to create Idiot-Syncrasy, they wanted to “change the world.” Recognizing that this would likely not be possible through performance, they started jumping, singing, and testing different ideas and actions that require perseverance and create a sense of empowerment. Direct from the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, these two London-based dancers take audiences on a unique journey of self-discovery, exploring both togetherness and solitude, and reclaiming dance as an agent for change. “Idiot-Syncrasy feels very human. More than that: humane…I left feeling an expanded person.” (LondonDance)
