NDCWales return to Dance City to present an evocative double bill of new work.

What happens when we prune ourselves to perfection? Caroline Finn takes us on a nostalgic journey, asking us to peer into The Green House. On a twisted TV set, characters discover the fine line between fantasy and reality. 'The Green House' is Finn’s second theatrical work as Artistic Director for the Company, following the overwhelming success of 'Folk' in 2016.

Playful, vibrant and provocative, 'Profundis' dares us to ask questions about what things are, and what they are not. Roy Assaf's thoughtful movement is accompanied by whimsical wordplay and an exotic soundtrack featuring Egypt's Umm Kulthum.
