Broken erupts onto the stage in an adrenaline filled multi-media spectacle. This awe-inspiring show has something for everyone. Athletic contact work, spectacular acrobatics and a gripping narrative combine with a revolutionary set design, an amazing musical soundtrack and digital imagery that melds with the performers as they move. Broken is guaranteed to wow audiences of all ages.

Broken examines our precarious relationship with the earth. Hanging in suspense and scrambling to safety, the dancers negotiate the cracks and craters of this world of illusions where nothing is quite as it seems.

Fast-paced, gripping, moving and exhilarating, Broken will take audiences on a journey into the earth, as they have never seen it before…

This exciting and thrilling show is a great family night out not to be missed!

Following three UK tours Broken a fourth tour is taking place in spring 2016.

“Truly amazing! Blew my mind away. Moving and jaw dropping. Loved graphics, music and athletics”
Audience Member


“...it's a blast...take popcorn”
The Guardian

“The fierce, fearless performers portray roots breaking rocks, and dive horizontally through a fiery backcloth like eruptions of lava, while a cave woman is spooked by shadowy figures and stalked on giant stilts, like some primal fear”
The Guardian

  “This great, surging spectacle from Motionhouse makes you feel as if you have been present at the creation and destruction of the world. It’s cataclysmic. High impact doesn’t even begin to describe its mix of athletic movement, thunderous soundtrack, searing music and a digital film background so clever and deceiving that it absorbs the dancers into its imagery”
