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 our trademark highly physical dance theatre and mesmerizing aerial imagery with film and graphics, to create a unique visual production. Performed on a huge curved floor (think of a skateboard half pipe), which disappears skywards, Scattered creates a world in which the dancers move in, on and through the image.

Scattered delves into the majesty and savagery of water, a fundamental force in our lives. Seven dancers plunge into an ocean, tumble down a waterfall, gasp with thirst under a scorching sun and slide on an avalanche to a frozen landscape of arctic beauty. A meteor shower of unlikely moments!

Scattered continues to feature in our repertoire and is now touring globally; it has witnessed two sell out tours to the USA and is touring to China, Japan and many European Cities later this year.


Tours to the USA, Hong Kong and Japan in 2013 and 2014 were produced by IMG Artists.


Virgin Atlantic was the official airline of Motionhouse’s Scattered tour of China 2012, a tour that was produced with the assistance of Reckless Moments.

'The performance is practically jet-propelled... the effect is propulsively kinetic and visual... the quicksilver cast almost never stops moving. Dazzling'
