I’ll Take You There – 2006

Take a trip through the corridors of a New York City public high school or let “I’ll Take You There” serve up the experience for you! Joy rides, crushes, pink lipstick and sickly sweet cologne permeate this raucous work. Miss Grundy makes more than a cameo appearance as do stock characters from the Archie comic books!

With “I’ll Take You There” Jonathan Hollander and the Battery Dance Company bring New York to Freiburg: one doesn’t often see dancing so relaxed, so fun, so goofy here. The cartoon inspired Video-Design and projection of comic-panels from times gone by. Here there is no calming fear with the U-Culture. Simply gorgeous!
