Two explorers (Dane Hurst, Eleanor Duval) search the dark mysteries of the ancient world and enter a perilous land beyond time and death. Hounded by scientists and supernatural forces, and trying desperately not to lose one another, they journey through lands of unleashed demons and gods to play their role in the resurrection of an ancient deity. Return to Heaven crosses lands, cultures and time to create a mythology and symbolism of its own. With influences of William Burroughs, old horror films and Victorian chillers, Return to Heaven presents visions of cursed tombs, jungles, science fiction nightmares and islands of paradise.
The company’s previous visits here at DanceEast have been amongst our most successful performances – if you like theatre along with dancing then this is the show for you! With incredibly high production standards and set to music ranging from Penderecki to Tchaikovsky, Mark Lanegan and Harry Belafonte, this dance theatre performance will be visceral and poignant, intricately choreographed and laced with dark humour.
