motionhouse present a doublebill: Captive / underground
Saturday 18th November | 7:30PM
Tickets: £16 (concessions for students and school groups available)
Four dancers perform this exciting blend of dance, acrobatics and aerial work inside a large cage. Disorientated and shaken, the performers use their skill and instinct to survive in this emotionally charged and athletic piece.

Energetic and thought-provoking Underground is attention-grabbing, edge of your seat, in–your-face dancing.
