AWARD-WINNING DANCE COMPANY RETURNS TO THE TORCH WITH THEIR SPRING TOUR!


“Terra Firma is deeply pleasing, with much to offer even the unschooled spectator.” - British Theatre Guide ★★★★★

 

 

Based at its purpose- built home, the Dance House at Wales Millennium Centre in Cardiff, National Dance Company Wales (NDCWales) is an award-winning company presenting work by some of the most celebrated international choreographers alongside new creations by emerging choreographic talent.

 

Coming to the Torch Theatre on Tue 27 Mar 2018, NDCWales’ Spring Tour consists of an evening of works under the heading Terra Firma, and a separate family/schools performance called Watch Dance Class, a unique look ‘behind the curtain’.

 

NATIONAL DANCE COMPANY WALES PRESENT TERRA FIRMA

For Wales’ national dance company; Contemporary Dance is a way to tell old stories in new ways.  Terra Firma tells stories drawn from the very ground on which we build our communities:

 

The Green House brings the outside in; on a Wes-Anderson style TV set, the ‘stars’ are stuck in a never-ending loop. Beautifully unsettling and full of character.

 

Tundra is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from Russian folk dance and revolution.

 

Atalaÿ 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.

 

A Watch Dance Class will run from 12.45pm – 2.00pm

The Watch Dance Class is an 'open doors' session where photographers, life drawers, students or anyone with an interest into Dance, where there is a chance to 'demystify the unknown' and have a first-hand look at how the dancers warm-up and practice before the show.

 

It is free to attend the Watch Dance Class.
