It's all real. It's all fake. It's all DaNCEBUMS.

After a year of laying low, DaNCEBUMS have something new to share: It’s All Real. It’s All Fake. It’s All DaNCEBUMS.

Performed to live music, It’s All Real... embodies DaNCEBUMS’ spirit of friendship and interdisciplinary innovation by continuing our collaboration with musical wünderkind Eric Mayson and under-the-radar visual artist/designer Matt Gorrie.

Taking cues from reality television, talk shows, and social media, It’s All Real.. neither represents, nor offers any solution to, contemporary life’s screen-based alienation and and anxieties. Instead we aim to unsettle the frame dividing real from fake and move through the fading illusion.

Set inside a cardboard tv studio, It’s All Real... will glissade between precise technique and pedestrian efficiency as the performance degrades into a glitchy and unstable representation of itself. What's left at the end may be humbling and surprising.

Expect humor, groove, exertion, and extreme bliss.
