Four dancers perform this exciting fusion of dance, acrobatics and aerial work inside a large cage.

Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem The Panther, this edge-of-your-seat, 28-minute performance, explores themes of captivity.

Trapped, disorientated and shaken, the performers use their skill and instinct to survive in an emotionally charged environment.

Captive premiered on 25 May 2013, Salisbury Festival, Kent, UK and has been touring ever since, visiting numerous European festivals as well as North Africa and the USA.

An all-female version of Captive will premiere on 2 August 2018 at Guildhall Yard, Aldermanbury – as part of the ‘Women: Work and Power’ celebrations.
