Experience multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts and capoeira in his re-imagined Moby Dick, together with a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.

LEVIATHAN follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale: Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew is drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction.

LEVIATHAN has been commissioned by: The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth University and Ocean City Festival, Swindon Dance, The Place, Blackpool Grand, Barnsley Civic, The Gulbenkian and BBC Performing Arts Fund, with support from Arts Council England.

Interval drinks can be purchased from the cafe before the performance.

There will be a post show talk after the performance.
