Event Information

In today’s disposable world where love is used to sell us everything from plug-in  cars to yoghurt… where did real love go?  

Cupid's Revenge is dance-theatre-comedy show by ground-breaking performance company, New Art Club

It's a joyful, physical and verbal outburst against the forces that masquerade as love.

Mythical love that drives the creation of the universe and everything in it.

Romantic love. 

Love between friends.

Love between you and the people you love.

It is funny, sad and reflective.

It is not a story but it holds lots of stories inside it. In that way it is like you.  

It has a flickering heart that has crashed to earth.

Cupid’s Revenge is an attempt to bring audiences together in a defiant act of unity and love. With New Art Club’s dexterous physicality this impossibly big topic is broken open and brought vividly to life. 

Cupid’s Revenge was originally commissioned by Cambridge Junction and Pavilion Dance South West (PDSW); and supported by Hull Dance and De Montfort University with public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

Physical comedy with brains, I laughed ‘til my face hurt.
