Whether you’re a dance aficionado or new to the art form completely, Creature will have you utterly mesmerised. Combining aerial acrobatics with contemporary floor work, the dancers take you on a journey of what it means to be human. The group explore the dimensions of humanity and its limitations yet achievements by flipping, falling and flying across the stage in a demonstration of animalistic energy alongside seamless transitions.
The dancers are unbelievably talented, their movements effortless as they glide through the air. Each member of the group has a clearly defined role that showcases their individual talents, but the overall pieces blends smoothly from one dancer to the next to create their story. They will have you gripping the edge of your seat as they swing through the air, bouncing and leaping, making it look so fun you’ll want to join them. The piece is beautifully choreographed and balanced between moments of complete silence and subtle gestures, to grand shows of strength and power when they come together as a group.
Fast paced and ferocious, Creature’s displays of power and energy prove to be some of the strongest moments, featuring the dancers matching raw movements to the loud, thumping drum beats. However, their ability to tell a story is the true beauty of the piece as a whole, where their unity and passion for dance shines through. A magical and unforgettable experience for the whole family.
