DO AS I SAY is a physical dance performance that wants to make our social behavior visible on issues of bullying and authority. The piece is interactive and both the audience and dancers receive verbal instructions from a recorded voice, but who is actually in charge?

The purpose of the performance is to give the audience access and opportunity to reflect on their own experiences in a fictional context that teaches about bullying and authority. We want the audience by participating in the show to become aware of how easily one can be influenced by a group or authority to a desired or perhaps less desirable behavior. Bullying is a big and difficult problem to overcome, moral conviction is not enough, it also takes courage to intervene when you see bullying. DO AS I SAY is a performance that evokes emotions and creates new thoughts in both youth and adults.

Words from the audience: ”Entertaining, confusing, intriguing, unusual, happy, artistic, scary and testing your limits”.

“I experience the show as something absolutely fantastic and interesting to both watch and be part of. A show with sooo strong message, incredibly talented dancers and choreographer… I call it a successful work of art. It was really exciting to take part in this and I hope to experience something similar again. “

Skånska Dagbladet: “A performance that is felt throughout the body, DO AS I SAY goes straight into the heart by mixing dance and movement with stories of vulnerability and bullying.”
