Scattered has been touring since October 2009 and has taken audiences by storm, with sell out shows and standing ovations in venues all around the world.

Scattered combines Motionhouse’s highly physical trademark style with entrancing digital imagery in an extraordinary interaction between film and live performance.

This astonishing production explores our relationship with water, a fundamental force in our lives.  Seven dancers delve into the majesty and savagery of water, plunging into an ocean, tumbling down a waterfall and sliding on an avalanche to a frozen landscape of arctic beauty.

Scattered uses projection technology, daring choreography and a ground-breaking set to create an extraordinary world where dancers and images interact seamlessly.

Capturing the imagination with its spellbinding and ingenious choreography, Scattered is a great family night out.

"Combining live dance with startling video and a powerful musical score, the show is certainly one that people will remember… mind-boggling physical feats are executed with incredible agility and vigor…There’s no dull spot in the action – and some of it is totally mesmerizing"
Express News, San Antonio

“Shock and awe: eliciting gasps as the dancers bodysurf across the face of the wave or launch themselves from its vertiginous peak”
The Observer  

“The performance is practically jet-propelled - the quicksilver cast almost never stops moving. Dazzling”

The Times

“An assault on the senses, amazing”
