The North will not be performed on Monday 7 August.

It’s a place we all know, but we have never been… A forest, a desert of ice. The land of ancient gods, wild animals and strange creatures. The home of the Terrible and the Sublime…

After their highly acclaimed debut Plan B for Utopia, Joan Clevillé Dance return with The North, the bleak yet whimsical story of a young man’s journey in search for meaning in an unpredictable environment. A place with its own sense of time and space, where being lost is the norm, and letting go the only way to survive…

Blending elements from dance, physical theatre and puppetry, The North features dancers Solène Weinachter (Lost Dog, Gecko), John Kendall (balletLORENT), and Eve Ganneau (Scottish Dance Theatre).

'Ridiculously entertaining and chillingly dark.'
