Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

A dark psychological thriller told through dance and movement.

Tomorrow isn't coming. As this knowledge bites, unpredictability grips the air, rationality disappears and social conventions are stripped away. Six characters and their shadow counterparts are swept into different stories and places, and slowly their inner worlds, hidden personalities, and unconscious desires are revealed.

In his first full-length work since Beauty of The Beast (★★★★ Guardian), choreographer Anthony Missen, uses an end of the world hypothesis and Carl Jung’s model of the psyche to explore human behaviour and our darker selves. The result is a gripping piece of dance theatre, questioning the identity of our own personal shadows and those of our era.

Please Note: This performance includes strobe and flashing lights.

“Powerful and disturbing dance.” - British Theatre Guide

“I was so transfixed by what was going on stage I had no recollection of what else was going on around me. It was absolutely gorgeous.” - Audience Reaction
