Captive by Motionhouse

Sat 24 July | 2pm + 4.30pm
Emslie Horniman Park



Four dancers perform this exciting blend of dance, acrobatics and aerial work inside a large cage. Disorientated and shaken, the performers use their skill and instinct to survive in this emotionally charged and athletic piece.

Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem The Panther, this extraordinary outdoor show explores notions of captivity. Extremely physical, Captive is a thrilling blend of dance and acrobatics with a dynamic narrative exploring human relationships in captivity.

Captive is created with support from Arts Council England, Birmingham Hippodrome, Without Walls, Swindon Dance, and Bristol City Council. Motionhouse is supported by Arts Council England with additional support from Warwick District Council and is a Hippodrome Associate Artist.
