Butterfly Dreaming Tour - Freq/Point of Contact/Butterfly Dreaming

Henri Oguike - 'one of the brightest hopes of British contemporary dance' (Daily Telegraph) - presents a stunning new triple bill and a hand-picked quintet of world-class dancers. Intense and unusual, yet shot through with trademark playfulness, Freq is a surprising solo piece played out to the music of Chopin. Point of Contact is classic Oguike: sensuality, beauty and sublime movement underscored by Bach's lyrical suites for solo cello. Butterfly Dreaming is a full Company work inspired by the Far East and set to Tan Dun's dramatic Ghost Opera recorded by the Kronos Quartet. Crafted on Chuang-Tzu's famous philosophical conundrum, 'the butterfly dream', it takes wing on a flight of fantasy, exploring the boundaries between the real and imagined. With wit, drama and bold theatrical colour, this is modern dance at its most thrilling and enjoyable.
