VERY loosely inspired by actual events – and written entirely in quarantine – Sick Moves! (or The Dancing Plague of 1518) is the story of Kamille, a young 16th-century apothecary in the Village of Sass-burg. When the Village is struck by a plague that causes non-stop boogieing (Do the Hustle!), Kamille sees her chance to restore the family name and her business.  Will Kamille save the Village in time? Surveying a century of dance crazes from the “Charleston” to the “Dab,” Sick Moves! is an original pop/rock musical comedy about the things we turn to when the world turns upside down.
