“Sweet fever” is a party loop choreography based on the iconic dance of “Fever Night”, the disco line dance created for the film “Saturday Night Fever”.

Performed by a large group of local volunteers, its long repetition moves between the faithful execution, to the modification, deformation or complete disfigurement, and simultaneously enters into dialogue with the video, the music and the lights, to re-signify this iconic choreography of the representation of the night and party worlds.

A ritualistic and ecstasy-like trip that proposes to revisit the rituals of banal entertainment and the constant search for immediate pleasure.
A funny, reflective and very sweaty analogy between the dance of the past and the music of today, between the rigid choreography of cinema in the 70’s and the loose corporality of the current late-night pleasure, between the representation of happiness on the big screen and the presentation of real physical enjoyment as a multidisciplinary dance performance.


“Sweet fever” is a flexible choreographic score based on the dance number “Fever Night” of “Saturday Night Fever”. It is created to be performed by a large group of volunteers, that will learn the score in a 4 days workshop, and it doesn’t matter their level of professionalism.

Preferably it should be presented during night time and placed either in a disco or nightclub or inside a theatrical venue. But it can also be performed on the street or in other unusual or non-theatrical spaces. The audience will be standing and the performing space will be elevated with podiums with the video screen as the back wall.
The score of the piece is easily adaptable to any exhibition space and also permits a durational modification, making it longer or shorter, depending on the occasion.
