A hunt for Matt Rudkin, a dance maestro whose funny and alarming show, ‘Naive Dance Masterclass’, plays as part of the Brighton Festival at the Nightingale Theatre. Naïve Dance Masterclass is a stand-up and dance-about comedy combining deadpan wordplay and expert physical tomfoolery in a sweet blast of erudite mayhem. Drenched in ecstasy and anguish, ex-contemporary dance star, Matt Rudkin, shares his tale of artistic salvation through the exertions of riot duty training and the love of an immigrant hula-hoopist.
