A spellbinding, collaborative multimedia evening both awe-inspiring and unnerving, Cast No Shadow
captures the sensation of bodies negotiating alien landscapes. Lauded for his extravagantly beautiful film installations, visual artist/ filmmaker Isaac Julien has re-imagined three epic journeys through very different landscapes, collaborating for the first time with choreographer Russell Maliphan - renowned for dance in which strength and grace share equal billing. Through spectacular footage of icebergs, waterfalls and snow, True North
draws inspiration from the first African American's journey to the North Pole; FantÃ´me Afrique
invokes the pulse of the African city Ouagadougou; and Small Boats
evokes the experiences of people escaping toward a better life. The powerful visuals, gorgeous slow motion tumbles - enhanced by Paul SchÃ¼tze]'s original music and Andy Cowton's beautiful sound score - add a visceral dimension to this gripping evening of film and dance.Company Russell Maliphant Company (some dancers).
