Admission free – advance booking required
Maximum six people per booking
Please note: We do ask you to respect social distancing when watching this performance. Please follow the offical Government Guidance when meeting family and friends outdoors.
Four dancers perform this exciting blend of dance, acrobatics and aerial work inside a large cage. Disorientated and shaken, the performers use their skill and instinct to survive in this emotionally charged and athletic piece.
Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem The Panther, this extraordinary outdoor show explores notions of captivity. Extremely physical, Captive is a thrilling blend of dance and acrobatics with a dynamic narrative exploring human relationships in captivity.
Once again Motionhouse has created a portable outdoor show which all kinds of people will enjoy because of its athleticism and beauty, combined with its thought-provoking storytelling craft. Like Underground and Cascade before, the universality of the tale and power of the piece will ensure a long life.
