Motionhouse dance company performing ‘Cascade’ as part of the three-days Greater Manchester festival Urban Moves 2010
Urban Moves International Biennale Dance Festival 2010, Manchester
The Urban Moves festival takes place around the city of Manchester over 3 days – Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th July – and features spectacular aerial dance pieces, 4 new commissions and international companies from Greece, France, Spain and Italy.
Performance: Set on a submerging house as the flood waters rise, Cascade is a thrilling and enthralling look at one family’s scramble to keep their heads above water and their feet on dry land! A company of fabulous dancers balance, fall, slide and tumble their way upwards as they ascend through the levels of their domestic life and arrive adrift on an endlessly disappearing island.
