Open Sky Theatre
The Disappearing Act

Blending new-writing and visual physical theatre, Open Sky tell the tale of magician’s assistant Edie Rose. On the eve of her sixtieth year Edie Rose is finally hosting her own show. To assist she conjures up two younger versions of herself. Together the three Edies (aged 20,40 and 60) re-examine the loves, hopes and losses of her life using séance, mentalism and dark, mysterious magic. The Disappearing Act is an alchemy of perspectives: the hopefulness of youth, the wisdom of experience and the disappearing act of ageing

James Wilton Dance
Leviathan

Leviathan follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale: Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction. Multi-award-winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick. Featuring a cast of 6, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, Leviathan will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul. Leviathan is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.
