Elvis Died of Burgers is made and performed by the food-obsessed directors of BLINK Dance Theatre.
If they’re not eating food, they’re talking about food, dreaming about food, and now... dancing, rapping and rhyming about food. Take a seat at the table as the cast spill the tea on their food stories and deep dive into the King of Rock‘n’Roll at the end of his life. Replete with their signature sensory and bizarre tangents... Good Food Gospel anyone?
Elvis Died of Burgers has a non-linear narrative and uses semi-improvised dance, theatre and spoken word to create an exciting edge of your seat experience for audience and cast alike.
All performances are relaxed and will have integrated BSL, interpreted by Greg Colquhoun. BLINK Dance Theatre are a neurodiverse-led, relentlessly inclusive arts organisation committed to tackling ableism by building bridges between inner city popular culture and learning disability culture. They are a Associate Company of the National Youth Theatre and part of the steering group for Assemble, a new programme created to address isolation amongst disabled young people .
