Don't miss James Wilton Dance's breathtaking production of The Storm at Bath Spa Uni next monthPosted on: 27 Feb 2019
A mind-blowing, eye-popping fusion of breakdancing, acrobatics, martial arts and lightning-fast athletic movement come together when Bath Spa University presents The Storm on Monday 11th March 2019.
Created by James Wilton Dance, one of Europe's most exciting and in-demand dance companies, the work is a combo of styles and techniques that dazzle and astound and leave the audience breathless with its sheer audacity and energy.
To a specially-composed soundtrack of electro-rock by Amarok, seven dancers whip up a world of astonishing athletic prowess that represents dancers being scooped into the inner whirlwind of The Storm itself, lifting them into the air, dropping them down and creating mini tornadoes of relentless velocity and power.
On another level, it's also a metaphor for the storm of the mind, evoking emotions and feelings and the unending quest for inner, mental resolution and peace.
A feast for the eyes, emotions, blood pressure and senses, then, The Storm is set to be a powerhouse production of unstoppable ferocity and life and a unique experience that will be performed on the university's Newton Park campus.
The performance starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £10, concessions £8 and BSU students £5, which can be booked here. Bath Spa University is located at Newton Park, Newton St Loe, Bath BA2 9BN. Tel. 01225 875875
