★★★★ "All the hallmarks of Bruce’s signature style are on view... an inspired blend of rock ‘n’ roll pop culture, dark and surreal folk mythology and smooth, cinema-influenced theatricality a la David Lynch delivered by a handful of high-calibre dancers." The Times
Bruce's highly popular commanding work choreographed to music by The White Stripes. A visceral and immediate live experience as two dancers perform within the confines of a rope circle, creating a space of powerful physical intensity and magnetic energy.
Characters from the myths of our past dance to the evocative music of Martin Simpson, including renditions of Beaulampkins, Soldier’s Joy and Betsy the Serving Maid among others. A collection of life affirming pieces; at once mysterious, fiery, and celebrational.
A tale of love and vengeance.
A stunning dance theatre tale of love, tragedy and revenge in a land where our phantoms roam free. Mark Bruce Company presents its trademark cinematic vision; a carousel of dream-like characters in a beautifully savage world falling into chaos, culminating in a surreal, classic showdown on the road. Phantoms features the creative team that brought you Dracula, Macbeth and Return to Heaven, and an originally composed score.
Please note that this production includes stylized depictions and images of violence that some viewers may find disturbing.
