Shay Kuebler presents a new full-length version of his 2011 hit Karoshi (meaning ‘death from overwork’ in Japanese), which is inspired by the clash between extreme societal pressure and personal needs, as exemplified in Japanese salaryman culture. Kuebler draws on martial arts, hip hop and contemporary dance to create physically explosive, high energy choreography for an outstanding all-male ensemble, incorporating live taiko drumming and video to create a thrilling and visceral theatrical experience. www.shaykuebler.tumblr.com
