We are excited to launch the season with a premiere from James Wilton Dance, The Storm; a whirlwind of lightning fast athleticism where acrobatics, break-dancing, martial arts and contact work fuse to form dance that will blow you away.
Seven dancers, a soundtrack of thundering electro-rock and thousands of pieces of paper combine to create a work that will impress you with its athleticism and touch you emotionally in a way that words simply can’t. James Wilton Dance are returning to DanceEast after performing Leviathan to a sell-out audience in 2016, so from experience we can guarantee you’ll leave the theatre feeling energised.
The Storm is co-commissioned by Blackpool Grand, Creative Barking and Dagenham, DanceEast, Pavilion Dance South West, Queen’s Hall Hexham, The Gulbenkian, The Place, Swindon Dance, Tanz Ist and Warwick Arts Centre, with support from Arts Council England Grants for The Arts.
James Wilton Dance is an associate company at Hall for Cornwall, Swindon Dance and is a Playtime artist at Pavilion Dance South West.
