Book

"Combines spectacular strength and elegance... impossible to look away"

The Guardian (on Nobody)

A triple bill of breath-taking dance-circus.

Three, a triple-bill from world renowned dance-circus company Motionhouse, brings together three powerful pieces from the company’s spectacular repertoire. This moving triple bill offers audiences an opportunity to experience the creativity of Motionhouse’s unique work and the exceptional skill of its performers. 

In Three, three distinct dance-circus pieces are drawn together by the common thread of exploration of the human condition and human connections, and through their powerful physicality.  

Knot

Inspired by Salvador Dali’s ‘Metamorphosis of Narcissus’, Knot sees two male dancers use complex lifts and contact choreography to poignantly explore both their vulnerability and the power of male connection.  

Gravity

Gravity is about the loneliness of space. Using breath-taking balances and extraordinary trust, in Gravity two performers explore weightlessness and zero gravity, combining thrilling hand-to hand acrobatics with Motionhouse’s signature contact choreography. An overwhelming sense of isolation underlies this precise, haunting performance. 

Wave After Wave

The evening concludes with the awesome, gravity-defying choreography of Wave After Wave. In this stunning piece of work the 7 strong company move as one, demonstrating the ultimate strength humanity has when unified.  

Breathtaking and effortless, the dancers lift, throw and catch each other with immense precision. Their extraordinary skill, mutual trust, tenderness and power, makes Wave After Wave a compelling and emotional work that has drawn standing ovations at every performance.
