On Choreography & Making Dance Theatre

Oberon has recently published Mark's new book "On Choreography & Making Dance Theatre".

"There is no definitive method of choreography. Any choreographer who has a voice has learnt and executed it in their way. Choreographers pick up things here and there from what they see, who they work with, and assemble a craft themselves. So much of what they do as artists is intuition and instinct. Creativity cannot be tamed and fully understood or concluded. Artists are dealing with imagination.


On Choreography and Making Dance Theatre will be an invaluable insight into Bruce's approach, both artistic and practical, as he documents his process from the beginnings of ideas to the realisation of a full-length production. Bruce provides an explanation of the range of skills he believes are required, and all that needs to be considered in the creation of dance theatre.

★★★★ "Goddard’s portrayal of the title character is simply extraordinary..." London Theatre 1

★★★★ "Incisive and thrilling dance-theatre…" The Arts Desk

Goaded by the whispers of demons, the Macbeths (Jonathan Goddard, Eleanor Duval) unleash murder for their own gains and set in motion their path to madness and self-destruction, unravelling events in a nightmare they cannot control.

With a cast of nine and designed by the creative team that brought you Dracula and The Odyssey, this dance theatre production realises a beautifully harrowing vision of an internal wasteland formed from the pursuit of power through ruthless means.
