I NEVER WANNA DANCE AGAIN  presents a collective journey of fragmented yet reflective and humorous take on the inheritance of human imperfection. It tests the limits of expression through the act of singing along to the songs we can’t resist, and aims to unfold the paradoxical judicious balance between perfection and imperfection. The work is developed with a hybrid group of participants; trained performers and performers from the local community, creating a multi-perspectives performance on the theme.

Materialized, performed or expressed otherwise, imperfections reveal the performer's authentic self. They are tokens of the unexpected, functioning sometimes as an act of resistance. Inspired by the cracks, Marom employs cultural references playfully and fiddle with the binary expectations of perfect and imperfect.
