Memories of dancing alone all night at a party; of whirling across the stage at the Paris Opera Ballet; of silently, slowly revolving with a new lover on a canal boat at night; of a repeated tic - a bodily habit that feels like dancing; of walking alongside their mother; of racing with a dog across a beach; of dizzily spinning children; of weeping and dancing; of hitting the mark for Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker... Can you remember every dance you've ever danced? Wallflower is a dance marathon, a game that alters according to the players. Each night the performers choose what they want to reveal, what story of themselves they want to tell as they try to remember every dance they've ever danced. In the seats around the dance floor, the spectators bring their own histories and expectations. And somewhere between the spotlight and the sidelines, Wallflower happens. On stage is a DJ, a disco-ball and a single chair. A fourth performer sits in the audience, recording every dance to add to an ever-expanding archive, a vast record of hundreds of memories which begins with first rehearsals and always ends with the last dance.
