James Wilton Dance, one of Europe’s most in demand dance companies, present The Storm, a whirlwind of lightning fast, athleticism, where acrobatics, break-dancing, martial arts and contact work fuse to form dance that will blow audiences away.
Seven dancers, a soundtrack of thundering electro-rock especially composed by Amarok and thousands of pieces of paper combine to create a work that will astound you with its athleticism and touch you emotionally in a way that words simply can’t.
In this storm can you find peace? Can you find the calm eye of the storm? Will it all blow over?
The Storm is co-commissioned by Blackpool Grand, DanceEast, The Gulbenkian, The Place and Swindon Dance, with support from Arts Council England Grants for The Arts and the Mayflower 400 Fund.
You can’t see the wind, but you can see how it changes objects.
You can’t see unhappiness, but you can see how it changes people.
A low becomes a depression, a depression becomes a storm.
When you’re unhappy people say “it will all blow over”.
There is a calm before the storm, is there one afterwards?
