Choreography Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker. Music Steve Reich, GyĂśrgy Ligeti performed live by Ictus

Lasers and video projections respond to every gesture and movement that Chunky Move’s dancers make as they create an ever-shifting, shimmering world of illusion where light and shade represent the most perfect or the most sinister of souls.

American composer Steve Reich has inspired Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker throughout her choreographic career ever since she exploded onto the international dance scene in 1982. In Steve Reich Evening she brings together seven pieces created over twenty-five years to the music of her favourite composer. Don’t miss this great opportunity to experience the work of two great artists performed by a superb company of dancers. Live music provided by six piece contemporary ensemble, Ictus. ‘She makes the dance shimmer over the music to hallucinatory effect.’ The Guardian on Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker %"5& 7&/6& 5*$,&54 %63"5*0/

The dancers trigger light patterns and sounds that appear to take on a life of their own. While the scenes are always in the same order, the work is truly live every night, unpredictable and ever changing. Please note: this production contains smoke, laser and strobe lighting effects and loud volume audio. ‘intensities of light and sound make Mortal Engine something of a bodysnatcher. It physically invades the viewer.’ The Australian %"5& 7&/6& 5*$,&54 %63"5*0/

The destructive power of beauty, the blind pursuit of pleasure and the darkness and corruption that lie beneath a charming façade; the themes behind Oscar Wilde’s cautionary tale have never been more timely. ‘Matthew Bourne is the undisputed king of dance theatre.’ The Observer %"5&   7&/6& 5*$,&54 %63"5*0/
