UKTW - 25 years online
CORONAVIRUS: 05May21 UpdateAll UK venues closed on 16th March 2020. Many are planning to re-open by late May 2021 with some restrictions and possibly fully open from mid-June.


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; Fantôme 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 Schütze]'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). Music Paul Schutze. Sound Andy Cowton.
