Touring international dance company Motionhouse perform a double bill:-
Captive & Underground
Four dancers perform this exciting fusion of dance, acrobatics and aerial work inside a large cage. Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke's poem The Panther, this edge-of-your-seat, 28 minute performance, explores themes of captivity.
Trapped, disorientated and shaken, the performers use their skill and instinct to survive in an emotionally charged environment. Captive premiered on 25 May 2013, Salisbury Festival, Kent and has been touring ever since, visiting numerous European festivals as well as North Africa and the USA.
Performed by four dancers in a rocking tubular structure, Underground uses stunningly physical dance, poignant imagery and surprising aerial encounters, exporing the intimacy of a crowded carriage, the crush of personal space. Winner of the Audience Prize at Miramiro Festival, Ghent, 2009.
A must see for dance, performing arts and drama enthusiasts.
