James Wilton Dance

Leviathan

£16 (£12 concessions)

Such concentrated, breathless energy can only be experienced, never just described...and an opera audience stomping their feet and whipping up a storm of applause at a contemporary dance show is equally hard to imagine”  Eveline Koberg, www.tanz.at

Leviathan follows Ahab, a ship’s captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining.

Ahab’s crew is drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction.

Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick. 

Leviathan is Man versus Nature; be careful what you fish for.

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. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.
