James Wilton Dance are pleased to announce their new full evening work LEVIATHAN. The work, based on Herman Melville’s seminal novel Moby Dick, has been commissioned by Blackpool Grand, Barnsley Civic, The Gulbenkian Theatre, Ocean City Festival, The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth University, Plymouth Culture, The Place and Swindon Dance. It is supported by grants from Arts Council England Grants for the Arts and the BBC Performing Arts Fund.
Featuring a cast of 7, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, LEVIATHAN will have you on the edge of your seat and gasping for air, under the sheer ferocity of movement; all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul. Premiering at The House, Plymouth on the 21st September 2016 as part of Ocean City Festival before completing a 22 date tour in Autumn 2016. The work will then continue touring into 2017 and beyond!
LEVIATHAN is Man versus Nature: be careful what you fish for!
Stay tuned for more information, tour dates, photo’s and more!
