Motionhouse is a leading force in British dance theatre. We tour extensively on the street festival circuit throughout Europe and the UK. Cascade is the third outdoor piece in our award winning festival repertoire.
Cascade premiered at Greenwich+Docklands International Festival in July 2010 and has since toured to critical acclaim. Set on a submerged house amidst rising waters, four dancers balance, slide and tumble their way upwards as they scramble to get ahead of the flood.
Cascade combines the very best of dance and acrobatics in a physical and dramatic spectacle, in which the presence of water becomes more pressing and insistently evident until it sweeps away all before it.
