Cascade

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 four intrepid dancers balance, fall, slide and tumble as they struggle to survive.

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.

Premiered | 01 July 2010, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, UK
