The best stories never get old, but you can tell them in new ways.

NDCWales share fresh works from Marcos Morau, hailed as 'The next big thing' in contemporary dance (Evening Standard) and Mario Bermudez Gil who wowed at Copenhagen International Choreography Competition alongside The Green House from the company's own Artistic Director, Caroline Finn.

The Green House is visually stunning and beautifully unsettling to watch. Caroline's trademark dark humour and theatrical choreography is set against a Wes-Anderson style TV set where the 'stars' are stuck in a never-ending loop: if we do the same things over and over, how can we expect different results?

Marcos Morau is known as a 'choreographer who doesn't dance' and he's been making waves across Europe with bold work drawing on inspiration from art, history and cinema. His piece Tundra is powerful and generous and tears pages from history using notes from Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution. Morau takes old ideas and uses contemporary dance to give them renewed meaning in a modern age.

Mario Bermudez Gil's Atalaÿ, draws on his Spanish roots and Israeli training and blends it with NDCWales' own brand of quirky theatricality to make a piece full of character and incredible skill.
