Dead Dreams of Monochrome Men (choreographed in 1989) begins with lascivious glances in a gay bar and ends with a brief glimpse from behind closed curtains onto the empty, sunlit street outside. 

The Times called this piece painful, original, convincingly observed and compassionate.

"Content, rather than style drives DV8's work, which distinguishes it from a lot of other contemporary dance. Issues, rather than 'prettiness' or aesthetics, are important. Our work delves into how individuals relate to one another, emotionally and intellectually, rather than being about movement or design patterns per se; exploring the individual's actions, and looking at how these in turn reect political and social issues." Lloyd Newson

Directed by David Hinton Devised and created collaboratively under the direction of Lloyd Newson Performed by Lloyd Newson, Nigel Charnock, Russell Maliphant and Douglas Wright Music by Sally Herbert
