‘Why can’t a stranger be a lover, and still remain a stranger?’ – Tim Dean

Cruising, Clubbing, Fucking is a dance-theatre performance for three dancers exploring how gay men have met and seduced each other, from the 60’s to the present day.CCF - Photo by Hugo Glendinning

Blending bodies with beats and contemporary dance styles with gesture, the three dancers move their way through this world of late night lust, combining pursuit, seduction and moments of tenderness.

The show explores anonymous encounters, play in parks and public toilets, handkerchief flagging, and what happens after all the music has died down and all the time together has been spent.

Commissioned by Homotopia and the Unity Theatre and funded by Arts Council England.
