‘Cog in the Wheel’ is a street dance showing a world where the production of smartphones is more important than human life.
‘Cog in the Wheel’ is a street dance choreographed & performed by Billy Read and crew, Def Motion. The piece explores a world where the production of smartphones is more important than human life. The dancers are not characters with stories and personalities, but are gears in a machine. They are a means to creating a product that can generate revenue.
Based on true stories, Def Motion brings their vibrant, unique street dance to a difficult topic. Cog in the Wheel is a street dance that also incorporates tutting, popping, mime, sign language and the deaf art form Visual Vernacular (VV)
