Captive/Underground - T01167522722

Captive is an exciting blend of dance, acrobatics and aerial work, performed inside a large cage. It was inspired by the poem The Panther by Rainer Maria Rilke which explores themes of captivity. The show has been designed to appeal to both newcomers to dance theatre and existing fans and has attracted praise from previous attendees. Performed by four dancers in a rocking tubular structure, Underground uses stunningly physical dance, poignant imagery and surprising aerial encounters to explore the new reality of train travel: the compressed intimacy of a crowded carriage; the crush of personal space; the studied ignoring of our fellow humans and the fear of a dangerous stranger. Travellers are thrown together in an unlikely alliance as graffiti artists paint their love in motion. Suspended at odd angles and riding the rhythm of the train, four characters are constantly drawn together then torn apart.

Fast-paced, gripping, moving and exhilarating, Broken takes audiences on a journey through our planet as they have never seen it before.

Following on from their focus of water in Scattered, Broken continues Motionhouse's exploration of elemental themes, this time looking at earth. Using multiple layers of scrolling film and Motionhouse's highly physical dance style, Broken creates an intriguing computer game-esque world of tunnels and burrows, shifting perspectives and see-sawing slopes and platforms. From hanging in suspense to diving for support, the dancers negotiate the cracks and craters of this world of illusions where nothing is quite as it seems.

A Meteor Shower of Unlikely Moments commissioned by Warwick Arts Centre. Scattered (working title) explores the amazing in the everyday in a meteor shower of unlikely moments. Combining highly physical dance theatre and mesmerising aerial imagery with film and graphics, Motionhouse creates a very special visual performance. The imaginative and powerful dance piece explores our relationship with water and how it surrounds us in different forms throughout our lives: in birth water ties us to life and on a more elemental scale, in ice, floods and tides, it can wash our lives away. Delving into the beauty and absurdity of water in different elements, six dancers dive into a moving stream, wrestle a raging tide and slide on an avalanche to a frozen landscape of arctic beauty.Director Kevin Finnan. Design Logela (projection). Music Sophy Smith. Lighting Natasha Chivers. Design Simon Dormon.

Fearless - T1583495306

Fearless - this is about our phobias. Fear of falling, fear of flying, fear of open spaces and tiny rooms. The sound of strangers footsteps on a lonely street, a nail biting chase and a smoke filled room. Fearless examines frightful and funny moments in a frantic and fearful imaginary world. Three dancers launch and hurl themselves across platforms; swing and shimmy on Escher inspired steps, and leap and dive onto an inflatable floor, in a turbine of extreme physical action.Choreographer Kevin Finnan.
