Production Info
Choreography by: Fernando Melo, Caroline Finn, Lee Johnston and Marcos Morau

AWAKENING

Three Unique dances to amuse and amaze.

AFTERIMAGE
Fernando Melo

A journey of fleeting images; of appearance and disappearance.
Mirrors are used on stage to form a unique theatrical experience where the past and the present collide with a poetic & creative style of dance.

 

REVELLERS’ MASS
Caroline Finn

Caroline Finn returns to National Dance Company Wales with a new work inspired by famous religious paintings such as DaVinci’s The Last Supper. On stage, an unlikely group gather for an evening of ritual, decadence and excess where etiquette and manners quickly dissolve into chaos.

 

TUNDRA
Marcos Morau 
Nominee - UK Theatre Awards 2018

Tundra tears pages from the Russian history books on folk dance, mass parades and revolution, revitalising old ideas with renewed meaning. It’s as mesmerizingly beautiful as it is robotically precise

 

THEY SEEK TO FIND THE HAPPINESS THEY SEEM
Lee Johnston 
(Theatr Clwyd & Pontio Only)

A raw and beautiful performance about miscommunication and disconnection in a relationship.

It uses a jigsaw of iconic choreography from famous couples including Ginger Rogers and Fred Astaire.

Tour Programme

Mae Afterimage yn daith o luniau gwib; o ymddangos a diflannu. Defnyddir drychau ar y llwyfan i greu profiad theatraidd unigryw lle mae’r gorffennol a’r presennol yn gwrthdaro mewn dawns farddonol a chreadigol ei natur.

An unlikely group gathers for a dinner party, where convictions, tradition and social etiquette are put to the test in an unexpected evening of revelry. 

Tundra is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from history books about Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution.
