World renowned dance company Motionhouse returns to Banbury next week for the finale of The Mill’s dance festival.

They will appear on Tuesday, November 8, with a double bill of performances of Captive and Underground.

Motionhouse creates ‘4D’ shows where music, visuals, dance and physical theatre combine. The company’s distinctive style integrates elements of circus and acrobatics with innovative dance.

Captive is a highly energetic piece performed by four dancers inside a large cage, blending dance and aerial work.

Underground is a thought-provoking piece performed by four of Motionhouse’s dancers within a rocking tubular structure, designed to explore the reality of train travel – the compressed intimacy of a crowded carriage, the crush of personal space, the studied ignoring of our fellow travellers and the light fear of a dangerous stranger.

The Season of Dance at The Mill has been funded by Arts Council England.

The event starts at 7.30pm. Tickets cost £13.50. Call 279002 or visit www.themillartscentre.co.uk to book or for more details.
