Presented by James Wilton Dance (UK)

James Wilton Dance, one of Europe’s most in demand dance companies, present The Storm, a whirlwind of lightning fast, athleticism, where acrobatics, break-dancing, martial arts and contact work fuse to form dance that will blow audiences away.

Seven dancers, a soundtrack of thundering electro-rock specially composed by Amarok and thousands of pieces of paper combine to create a work that will astound you with its athleticism and touch you emotionally in a way that words simply can’t.

The Storm grows from a light breeze and becomes something too powerful to fathom. It scoops the dancers into the air then drops them to the floor with unrelenting velocity, transforms them into mini tornadoes and sends them spiralling out of control.

More than just weather, this storm is of the mind. You can’t see the wind but you can see how it changes objects. In the same way, you can’t see emotions, but you can see how they change people, how they knock them off their feet, then sweep them away. In this storm can you find peace? Can you find the calm eye of the storm?

Will it all blow over?
