Set on a submerged house amidst rising flood waters Cascade is an enthralling look at one family's scramble to keep their heads above water and their feet on dry land! Our 4 fabulous dancers balance, fall, slide and tumble their way upwards as they ascend through the levels of their domestic life and arrive adrift on an endlessly disappearing island.
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 more powerfully evident as it sweeps away all who come before it.
