JOAN CLEVILLÉ DANCE: THE NORTH

19:30, 28 Feb

It’s a place we all know but have never been… A forest, a desert of ice. The land of ancient gods, wild animals and strange creatures. The home of the Terrible and the Sublime…

After their acclaimed debut Plan B for Utopia, Joan Clevillé Dance returns with The North, the bleak yet whimsical story of John, a young man who finds himself lost in the harsh yet delicate wilderness of the North with only himself and two eccentric Northerners for company. Without any memory of who he is or where he comes from, John searches for his own identity in an increasingly unpredictable environment, a place where being lost is the norm and letting go the only way to survive.

Blending elements from dance, physical theatre and puppetry, The North features cinematic visual and sound design with original music by Luke Sutherland and an eclectic soundtrack from Wagner to Frank Sinatra.

★★★★

'Clevillé takes the surreal into a realm that is both ridiculously entertaining and chillingly dark... Utterly more-ish'

The Herald
 
★★★★

'...leaves the audience under its spell.'

The Wee Review
 
★★★★

'fine physical poetry'

The Stage
 

'The piece itself is a lot of fun too, with the added bonus that – as well as being fun, and having bits of dialogue – it’s performed by people who (unless you’re a trained dancer too) can just do amazing stuff that you can’t. And can do it without breaking a sweat, at the same time as doing all the normal stuff you can do. Which is a pretty excellent thing to go and see.'

Postcards from the Gods
 
★★★★

'The three performers give strong and engaging performances, lacing their movements and characters with a vulnerability that could so easily be missed in a piece so movement based.'
