For out very first video interview we turned to Charlotte Vincent, one of the bright creative stars in contemporary dance, prior to a performance by her company of 'Punchdrunk'.

"PUNCH DRUNK celebrates Vincent Dance Theatre's tenth anniversary with a sensational journey into the world of vaudeville and burlesque. An international cast of seductive showgirls and shameless men perform an exotic variety show, full of extravagant costumes, risqué routines, acrobatic feats and clever turns.

In an emotionally raw and comic story of undercurrents and underwear, PUNCH DRUNK's six extraordinary performers reveal the backstage bickering, blood, sweat and tears behind their glamorously corseted speciality acts."

In our video feature we bring a 5 minute clip from the 90 minute piece. As well as the video presentation we are also bringing you a first for us and probably any other dance related publication in the shape of a video interview with Charlotte Vincent which includes even more footage from the show.

Puchdrunk is performed by T.C. Howard (pictured above), Janusz Orlik, Patrycja Kujawska, Aurora Lubos, Lindsey Butcher, Geir Hytten and Iris Heitzinger with music by John Avery.
