Tramp

Duration:35 mins

(Molly and Me)

A Dadaist music and fitness show combining a series of songs, awkward choreographies and stories.

We sing, talk, dance, hop around and play various instruments lying around. Our voices are fine and feminine but this is where all purity and gracefulness ends. If you pay attention you’ll notice that our lyrics are often ruthless and twisted. Molly and Me humorously describe an odd mixture of light and serious everyday situations such as friendship, love, mass consumption, animals and youth suicide. One catchy tune follows another, spiced up by dialogue. Below our fragile exteriors lies an unsentimental power, expressed physically through rituals and texts. Underneath our dresses, are tight-fitting Lycra coveralls with black and white stripes that are reminiscent of a prisoner’s uniform from years ago. The costume changes play an equally important part in the show. The performance is concurrently fine and raw, fragile and ironic, serious and sarcastic. In TRAMP we have combined the absurd, Dadaist tradition of sound and nonsense poetry with political, satirical undertones, adding a feeling of montage and cabaret to the show with an accessible appeal.
