CHARGE – Motionhouse Dance Company
Electrifying new dance-circus from Motionhouse.
Premiering in October 2017, Charge, Motionhouse’s incredible new multi-media show is about energy.
From the electrical charge that sparks human life, to the beating of our heart and the memories we make, six performers use dance and acrobatics to delve deep into the human body, tracing the incredible story of energy in our lives.
Digital projections create a world on stage where dancers and images interact seamlessly, bringing to life stories of energy in our own bodies, humans as energy manipulators and the Earth’s weather systems.
Charge is a unique collaboration between art and science: Motionhouse is working with partners from Oxford University to support the creative and choreographic process, putting science at the heart of artistic practice. Charge is the third element of Kevin Finnan’s ‘Earth Trilogy’, developing on themes explored in Scattered (2009) and Broken (2013) about our relationship with water and the Earth.
