The Nodines is an interactive experience for children and adults performed by a real family of dancers. The audience sit in a large circle as two parents and their child establish a simple narrative about physical invention and imagination. The performers build a comfortable link to the audience and invite them into the circle to play freely with images and moves from the show.
With live music by Jamie McCarthy, Lighting by Gareth Green and Design by Florence Hendriks.
Choreographed by Simonetta Alessandri, Rick Nodine and Stella Nodine.
Produced by Lia Prentaki
The Nodines have toured Scotland, England and Germany in 2015/16.
Made with support from The Place and Arts Council England

In 1987 Rick was 17 and the Grateful Dead had already been on tour for more than 20 years. Rick should have been a fan of hip hop, glam rock, new wave or post punk, but it was those hippie dinosaurs that made him dance.
Dead Gig was one of four works selected for The Finals of The Place Prize at The Place in April 2013
