DANCE TOURING PARTNERSHIP PRESENTS BOY BLUE ENTERTAINMENT IN: THE FIVE & THE PROPHECY OF PRANALive Performances / Events

DANCE TOURING PARTNERSHIP PRESENTS BOY BLUE ENTERTAINMENT IN: THE FIVE & THE PROPHECY OF PRANA

7 October - 8 October

Five young troublemakers are drawn into a power struggle that has divided a secret group of warriors. Given a chance to redeem themselves and to restore peace, their action-packed adventure becomes a celebration of camaraderie and the triumph of the human spirit.
Set in modern Tokyo, The Five & the Prophecy of Prana sees dazzling visuals frame a dynamic fusion of hip-hop and martial arts in an explosive tribute to manga – Japan’s popular graphic novel form.

Kenrick ‘H20’ Sandy and Michael ‘Mikey J’ Asante, the Olivier award-winning team behind Pied Piper and choreographer and composer for the film Streetdance 3D, have worked with the monks from the Shaolin Temple Warrior School, Japanese manga artist Akio Tanaka, and award winning video animation studio Yeast Culture, to create this electrifying show.
Followed by a post-show discussion with the Company on Tuesday 7 October only.

“Kenrick ‘H2O’ Sandy’s choreography… flows like water, one minute silky smooth, the next fast and furious, b-boying, tutting and krumping, and requires little narrative, but narrative there is.”
British Theatre Guide

“A mash-up of superhero comics, Japanese manga and kung fu movies. Hip-hop and fighting moves mesh wonderfully.”
The Independent

CURIOUS SEED IN ASSOCIATION WITH MOKO DANCE PRESENT: CHALK ABOUTLive Performances / Events

CURIOUS SEED IN ASSOCIATION WITH MOKO DANCE PRESENT: CHALK ABOUT

28 October

Chalk About is a show for families which is a playful, funny and sometimes moving look at how we see ourselves and others, featuring dance, chat and one perfect scene containing everything you could wish for…

Join Christine and Hendrik on their journey as they find answers to some big questions about identity and the meaning of life. What makes us who we are? Is it where we are from? Is it the way we move, or how we talk? Our pasts or our futures? Or is it about the way we dance?

“Brave, honest and delightful … full of a rich sense of the joy of human difference.”
The Scotsman

A fun-filled programme of MOKO Dance family activities will be available one hour before the show.

THE URBAN PLAYGROUND: STEAM [WORK-IN-PROGRESS]Live Performances / Events

THE URBAN PLAYGROUND: STEAM [WORK-IN-PROGRESS]

31 October

Urban explorers enter an empty industrial space and beneath canvas tarps discover the skeletal remains of a machine that changed the world. Captivated, they open a furnace and shovel coal on the fires of the past. An elegant model of efficient motion, it is monstrously utilitarian and gracefully refined. In the ghostly light of the hungry engine images of epic journeys appear. Engineers and drivers, station guards and porters hurry back to work at the sound of a whistle blast; and the passengers, the passengers begin to dance…

From revolutionary Russia to Buster Keaton’s Old West and from the Europe of Holmes and Poirot to the futuristic Asia of a James Bond movie, this train will take you on journey you’ll never forget.

This work-in-progress showing will be accompanied by two ‘Micro-Choreographies’ performed by local participants.

HETAIN PATEL: AMERICAN BOY

26 November

How much do movies influence us?

Delving into American movie and homegrown TV culture, visual artist and performer Hetain Patel once again takes to the stage in his highly anticipated first solo show.

With a personal and humorous take on identity shape-shifting, he shakes up our conception of who we are.

Through a playful synthesis of vocal and physical imitations, he conjures up film characters from his playground days: see Agent Smith from the Matrix get physical with Spider-Man whilst Eddie Murphy argues with Michael Caine.

American Boy follows Hetain’s international success with the TED Talk version of his stage work Be Like Water, recently reaching over 2 million views.
Followed by a post-show discussion with Hetain Patel.

“Patel is as much entertainer as performance conceptualist… a smooth quick-change artist capable of morphing between accents and characters with engagingly comic ease.”
The Times

American Boy: Hetain Patel. Image © Hetain Patel.

Co-programmed in partnership with Brighton Dome. Co-produced and commissioned by Sadler’s Wells, London. Co-produced by BDE London 2012 Consortium. Development supported by Mercy, Liverpool, and Penned in the Margins, London. American Boy is supported with public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England.

MARK BRUCE COMPANY: DRACULALive Performances / Events

MARK BRUCE COMPANY: DRACULA

2 December - 4 December

Mark Bruce’s company of ten exceptional dancers bring Bram Stoker’s haunting, erotic tale to life in a heart wrenching and magical dance theatre production. With an eclectic mix of music from Bach and Mozart to Ligeti and Fred Frith, Bruce explores choreographic styles ranging from the subtlety of classical etiquette to visceral contemporary dance.

Jonathan Goddard plays the infamous Vampire Count, whose sinister and ruthless ambitions challenge the very fabric of Victorian society. As his victims and opponents rally against him they must face the darkness and savagery within themselves.

Winner of the prestigious South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance, this critically acclaimed production should not be missed.

“I’d be surprised if I saw a more entertaining piece of dance theatre this year. Kill for a ticket.”
The Observer

In association with Tobacco Factory Theatres, Pavilion Dance South West and Wilton’s Music Hall. Supported by Arts Council England and the National Lottery.
