Mark Bruce Company

SUMMARY

Following the critically acclaimed Love and War (Mayfest 2010) and Sea of Bones, Mark Bruce Company in association with The Tobacco Factory Theatre present its new, savagely beautiful dance theatre production Made in Heaven.

Merging ancient themes with the dystopia of contemporary life, Mark Bruce creates a surreal world ruled by a blinded cop and a malicious virgin, where a prairie girl dreams of other lives and a chain-gang dances on the edge of an inferno.

With music ranging from Debussy and Leadbelly to Queens of the Stone Age and The Black Keys, this dark, sometimes comic piece interrogates the very idea of heaven.

Mark Bruce has choreographed, directed and danced internationally for over twenty years. His work includes collaborations with Bern Ballet, Rosas, PJ Harvey, Igloo, Probe, Introdans, DJazzex and the Royal Exchange Theatre.

"A compelling evening of dance theatre."
