Leviathan – James Wilton Dance

  • Show Information

‘Inspired by Herman Melville’s Moby Dick’

Multi award-winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick. Featuring a cast of 7 and Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, Leviathan will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.

Leviathan is Man versus Nature; be careful what you fish for.

Commissioned by: The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth University, Plymouth Culture and Ocean City Festival, Swindon Dance, The Place, Blackpool Grand, Barnsley Civic, The Gulbenkian and BBC Performing Arts Fund, with support from Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts.

“More than dance, this is sport, breakneak and to the exetreme.”
PETER FUSSL, KULTURZEITSCHRIFT

“breath-taking virtuosity and split-second synchronization… even the world’s best classical companies rarely approach this level of physical discipline.”
