Terra Firma

Breathtaking performances from National Dance Company Wales

Thursday 3rd May 2018 - Friday 4th May 2018

“The best stories never get old, but you can tell them in new ways.”

This is the intro to Terra Firma, the new performance by National Dance Company Wales showing at The Place this May.

The contemporary dance troupe spins three enchanting tales drawn from the earth:

  • The Green House which brings the outside in, as, on a Wes-Anderson style TV set, the ‘stars’ are stuck in a never-ending loop in a story that is as beautiful as it is unsettling,
  • Tundra, a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from Russian folk dance and revolution, and,
  • Atalaÿ, both a watchtower from which far-off lands can be seen from four points, and a contagious dance influenced by the warmth of the Mediterranean.

Terra Firma takes place on 3 May & 4 May at 7.30pm at The Place on Duke’s Road.

Tickets are priced at £20 (concessions £13), and visitors are welcome to stay after the show on 3 May for a special Q&A with the artists.
