HOW WILL YOU USE YOUR GODLINESS?
We Are As Gods invites audiences to come together to explore, discover and be enthralled in an explosive celebration of dance. Set in an eclectic club like atmosphere and featuring a soundtrack combining provoking voiceover with music from the likes of George Michael and Whitney Houston, this is a contemporary dance experience like no other.

"A NIGHT TO REMEMBER"
Originally created for the iconic Battersea Arts Centre in London, the show sits across up to 15 spaces of varying size. At BAC this included everything from the 35m long grand hall to the rooftop, basement and attic. Each space has a different soundtrack
meaning every audience member has a totally unique experience as they explore; curating their experience alone, with friends or by following the performers.
A SOUND EXPERIENCE
LIKE NO OTHER
Every space in We Are As Gods has its own soundtrack rather than one global track. This means we can have an intimate duet in one space and a party with 10 dancers in another happening simultaneously giving audiences totally different experiences and journeys throughout the show.
The soundtrack also weaves in poetry by acclaimed poet and writer Sabrina Mahfouz, which speaks directly to the audience, questioning, encouraging and at times provoking them. The text asks us to consider how will we use this space we have and touches on wider themes of empire and climate change.
The finale of We Are As Gods is to the iconic I Wanna Dance With Somebody by Whitney Houston and shifts into a mix that keeps the audience dancing.
"JAMES COUSINS'S CHOREOGRAPHY IS ECLECTIC, BUT ALWAYS JOYOUS, CHEEKY, SENSUAL... IT BRINGS WHOOPS OF DELIGHT FROM THE AUDIENCE."
THE REVIEWS HUB
When audiences enter the building they are free to explore as they want, following the Gods or going off and exploring by themselves. Our rules are simple, if a door opens you may go through and any floor is a dance floor!
The show starts with a voice telling us 'Here is a space, a space to make...'. The invitation is simple, curate your experience as you want. Stand in one space or roam around. Explore with friends or alone. Stay still or take the opportunity to move and dance.
