It’s Not Unusual
Choreographed by Vinicius Salles. Who never went to a pub and caught yourself seeing Delilah being thrown table to table? Or saw a bunch of lads drunk on the street saying to a girl: she is a lady! Or couldn’t resist thinking about the music… it’s not unusual?! This show wants to investigate toxic masculinity and sexism by focusing on one of the most notorious symbols of British music, Tom Jones. We want to dive into his most popular tunes, to have a physical approach into the images of ‘man’ built in British culture in which his person embodied. And on that extend, to highlight how woman is represented in his lyrics to have a critical, ironic, sometimes funny, study of what is behind his most catchy tunes ingrained in every pier you ever ate a fish and chips, such as Delilah, She is a lady and It’s not Unusual.
