Dance Me to the End of Love

 

Dance Me to the End of Love draws its inspiration from Nobel prize winner for literature Hermann Hesse's famous novel "Siddhartha".  Fusing elements of theatre and dance with live music, the show chronicles the quest of a young man, Siddhartha, for the conquest of suffering and fear.  Siddhartha's journey leads him through the temptations of luxury and wealth, the delights of sensual love and the sinister threat of death-dealing snakes towards the fulfillment of his destiny as a ferryman guided by the all-knowing voice of the running river.

 

In this visually stunning production, the story of Siddhartha is counter balanced by the poetic and haunting songs of Canadian singer and poet, Leonard Cohen.

4.48 Psychosis by Sarah Kane

 

love me or kill me -

a kaleidoscopic meditation

on the unbearable intensity of life

 

Sarah Kane's modern classic portrays a mind in acute despair, where fragments of pain and anger are interspersed with shafts of piercing humour.
