Comedy duo New Art Club return to Déda with hilarious tale!

On Saturday 27 October, dance come comedy duo New Art Club return to the Déda theatre with brand new show, Quiet Act of Destruction.

A double act unlike any other, New Art Club seamlessly blend the worlds of contemporary dance and stand up comedy to hilarious effect. Described as ‘the Gilbert and George of dance’ the pair have previously created the IRA Dance Routine and an Aboriginal War Dance to the guttural sounds of Kylie Minogue.

Quiet Act of Destruction falls somewhere between a game show, a stand-up comedy and a church garden party. The audience will be invited to divide themselves into rival villages and take part in a series of wild games and activities, weaving in the hilarious true tale of a rural conflict caused by the renaming of a train station. Expect bread throwing, swaying and animal-noise making, and that’s just from the audience.

Set to an eclectic soundtrack including Roots Manuva, The White Stripes, Kraftwerk, Penguin Café Orchestra alongside some live, experimental beat-boxing, this is an evening you won’t forget!

Tickets for Quiet Act of Destruction are £10 (£8 concession) and are available from the Déda Box Office on 01332 370911 or online at
