Motionhouse:Broken

Poole Old Town

disabled access

Building on the success of international hit Scattered, which explored the theme of water, Broken examines our precarious relationship with the earth, luring the audience into a world of shifting perspectives.

This powerful company submerge highly athletic dance within intricate digital imagery and original music in an unashamedly visual and adrenaline fuelled spectacle, contrasting the caves of our ancient ancestors with modern apartments of glass and steel, juxtaposing the mythical underworld where our hopes and fears are amplified with the visceral overworld of light and speed, questioning our ambivalence towards our world - that is, until disaster strikes.

Hanging in suspense, diving for support and scrambling to safety, the dancers negotiate the cracks and craters of this world of illusions where nothing is quite as it seems.
