“Clevillé takes the surreal into a realm that is both ridiculously entertaining and chillingly dark... Utterly more-ish.” **** The Herald

It’s a place we all know but have never been… A forest, a desert of ice. The land of ancient gods, wild animals and strange creatures. 

The home of the Terrible and the Sublime. 

After their acclaimed debut Plan B for Utopia, Joan Clevillé Dance returns with The North, the bleak yet whimsical story of a young man’s journey in search for meaning in an unpredictable environment. A place with its own sense of time and space, where being lost is the norm and letting go the only way to survive...

Blending elements from dance, physical theatre and puppetry, The North features dancers Eve Ganneau (Andersson Dance, Scottish Dance Theatre), John Kendall (balletLORENT) and Solène Weinachter (Lost Dog, Gecko); as well as cinematic visual and sound design with original music by Luke Sutherland.

This performance is audio described by Emma Jane McHenry
