About this Event

By National Dance Company Wales

Thrilling triple bill featuring fresh works from Marcos Morau, hailed as ‘The next big thing in dance’ and Mario Bermudez Gil who wowed at Copenhagen International Choreography Competition, alongside The Green House from the company’s own Artistic Director, Caroline Finn.

The Green House is visually stunning and beautifully unsettling to watch. Caroline’s trademark dark humour and theatrical choreography is set against a Wes-Anderson style TV set where the ‘stars’ are stuck in a never-ending loop: if we do the same things over and over, how can we expect different results?

Tundra is powerful and generous and tears pages from history using notes from Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution. Marcos Morau is known as a ‘choreographer who doesn’t dance’ and he’s been making waves across Europe with bold work drawing on inspiration from art, history and cinema.

Atalaÿ is a contagious dance influenced by the warmth of the Mediterranean. Mario Bermudez Gil will create a new work drawing on his Spanish roots and Israeli training give a unique flare which will blend with NDCWales’ own brand of quirky theatricality to make a piece full of character and incredible skill.
