Feeling the grind? Hail the New Puritan will give you the kick in the bare butt you so need right now. In this post-punk ballet fantasy of Scottish choreographer and dancer Michael Clark, director Charles Atlas “seamlessly integrates Clark's extraordinary dance performances into the docu-narrative flow. Focusing on Clark's flamboyantly postured eroticism and the artifice of his provocative balletic performances, Atlas posits the dance as a physical manifestation of Clark's psychology” (EAI). Soundtrack featuring The Fall and Glenn Branca, sets designed by Leigh Bowery. Ultra sensory, sultry joy.
