Presented By Motionhouse


Part of Dancing City

4 & 5 September

Duration: 45 mins

What to Expect: Make some noise


This daring dance-circus production from Motionhouse explores our disconnect with the natural environment: in our modern lives, is the wild still shaping our behaviour? With a design which imagines an urban forest in the heart of Canary Wharf, performers use powerful physicality and incredible feats to move through a jungle of tall poles.

About the company

Founded in 1988 by Louise Richards and Kevin Finnan MBE, Motionhouse create world-class dance-circus productions that tour extensively around the world. From full-length productions for theatre touring to flexible work for the outdoors and large-scale performance events, their sell-out productions integrate athletic physicality, powerful narrative, incredible digital imagery and emotive sound scores. Their work takes its inspiration from common human concerns and our connection to the world in which we live, with recent works exploring flooding, the pressure of time, fear and captivity, and our relationship with water, the Earth and energy. Their dancers perform on stunning sets, alongside JCB diggers, with aerialists and singers, in incredible settings and to breath-taking effect.
