About the Show

James Wilton Dance, one of Europe’s most in demand dance companies, present The
Storm, a whirlwind of lightning fast, super athletic movement, where acrobatics, breakdancing,
martial arts and edge of the seat contact work fuse to form dance that will blow
audiences away.

Seven dancers of extraordinary skill, 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?
