A triple bill of award winning dance pieces, Terra Firma tells stories that are drawn from the very ground on which we build our communities. It pulls together vibrant physicality with memorable music and beautiful scenery.
Folk by Caroline Finn is a twisted vintage fairy tale; set in a rich fantasy world under the boughs of an upside down tree this piece is as darkly whimsical as it is enchanting. They say ‘there’s none so queer as folk’ and in this quirky and surreal portrait of community life, Caroline’s characters paint a fantastical picture.The theatrical choreography and dark humour are accompanied by a captivating soundtrack and rich, haunting designs.
Tundra by Marcos Morau is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from history books about Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution. Marcos Morau’s bold style draws inspiration from art and cinema. Tundra takes old ideas and uses contemporary dance to give them renewed meaning.
Atalay by Mario Bermudez Gil is a watch tower from which far off lands can be seen from four points. A contagious dance influenced by the warmth of the Mediterranean, Mario Bermudez Gil draws on his Spanish Roots and Israeli training, blending them with NDCWales’ quirky theatricality to make a piece full of character and incredible skill.
There will also be a post-show talk in the bar directly after the show, with the rehearsal director and some of the dancers.
