The North

Joan Clevillé Dance returns to Macrobert with The North, the bleak yet whimsical story of John, a young man searching for his own identity in an increasingly unpredictable environment.

The North

About The North

It’s a place we all know but 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…

Joan Clevillé Dance returns with The North, the bleak yet whimsical story of John, a young man who finds himself lost in the harsh yet delicate wilderness of the North with only himself and two eccentric Northerners for company. Without any memory of who he is or where he comes from, John searches for his own identity in an increasingly unpredictable environment, a place 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 cinematic visual and sound design with original music by Luke Sutherland and an eclectic soundtrack from Wagner to Frank Sinatra.

This performance is BSL Interpreted.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for The North are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
