Bruce presents his surreal and timeless adaptation of Mary Shelley’s classic gothic novel, Frankenstein. Alchemy and science collide as Dr Frankenstein, goaded by an otherworldly entity, unlocks the secrets of the creation of life. Jonathan Goddard plays the role of Frankenstein’s tragic monster, sewn together from the shreds of humanity, rejected and wandering in a timeless landscape, beautifully portrayed in this profound and deeply moving production. Frankenstein features evocative music from Chopin, Penderecki and Arvo Pärt.

Frankenstein is preceded by a shorter work, Liberation Day. A powerful, contemplative dance work about life, love, and the passing of time, danced to songs written by Bruce.

With a unique choreographic language, distinctive imagery and eclectic musical scores, Bruce’s work draws from a broad spectrum of influences and has a strong cinematic quality. This multi-award-winning dance theatre company presents an exceptional cast of six dancers together with the world-class creative team which brought you previous productions such as Dracula, The Odyssey, Macbeth and Phantoms, a triple bill.

Dancers: Cordelia Braithwaite, Eleanor Duval, Jonathan Goddard, Carina Howard, Dominic Rocca, Anna Daly
