Dark & delicious tales of sex, addiction, violence & vanity.

Inspired by the medieval allegory, "Dance of Death," DANSE MAKABRE is a narrative dance anthology series which explores the dynamic relationships that exist between men.

DIRECTOR'S NOTE: This ongoing project began in the summer of 2015 and has continued to evolve. The personal choices in the lives of the music artists featured do not reflect the beliefs, opinions, or life choices of our company members nor DANSPIEK itself as a company. The songs and artists were selected at the time of each piece's inception to illustrate the varying degrees of toxicity that come with a turbulent relationship.
