Awe-inspiring dance that gathers energy as it grows.


YAMA is an extraordinary one act dance piece which explores the mythology associated with mountains, inspired by the pagan and animist rituals practised among the mountains of Tohoku, Japan.


Award-winning choreographer Damien Jalet has been responsible for some of the most revered productions of the last 10 years, including the Laurence Olivier Award 2011 winning Babel, and has worked with Akram Khan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, and Marina Abramovic on a radical re-staging of Bolero at the Paris Opera House. In YAMA, Jalet’s hypnotic choreography, and the tangled ensemble of exceptional dancers leaves its tingle and stain under the skin


'Mesmerising brilliance'




'Profound, powerful and hugely demanding'
