Leviathan

A reimagining of Herman Melville's Moby Dick

Captain Ahab is hell-bent on capturing the white whale Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him towards almost certain destruction.

Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping at the sheer ferocity of movement, accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack from Lunatic Soul.

LEVIATHAN is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.

Commissioned by: The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth University, Plymouth Culture and Ocean City Festival, Swindon Dance, The Place, Blackpool Grand, Barnsley Civic, The Gulbenkian and BBC Performing Arts Fund, with support from Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts.
