Captive by Motionhouse

Tue 27 Jun, 2017, 7.00pm, The Quad 
Performed by four dancers in a large cage,Captive is inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem The Panther and considers how a human, like an animal, can be plucked from normal life and plunged into captivity. Rendition has made the human experience the same as the animal’s and with confinement thrust upon the unsuspecting victim, the wild and free must find ways of expressing within the bordered and caged.
“Motionhouse have raised the bar for outdoor presentation of contemporary dance – their highly inventive yet simple staging means that we have the opportunity to present dynamic and lively dance as part of the festival.”
Angus MacKechnie, Producer | Watch This Space Festival, National Theatre
