Competition: WIN tickets to 32 rue Vandenbranden & a three course meal for two at HOME

Suzy Prince

Enter our competition to win two tickets to 32 rue Vandenbranden at HOME, plus a meal for two with a bottle of house wine in the venue’s restaurant.

HOME’s  international guest artists for 21016, leading Belgian dance theatre collective Peeping Tom, presents the jaw dropping production 32 rue Vandenbranden from 23-25 May. A pair of rickety trailer homes sit within a snow-covered landscape exposed to the elements; the inhabitants slowly succumb to their subconscious fears, overcome by a pervading sense of loneliness.

The production has collected numerous awards since its premiere in 2009, including Best New Dance Production at the 2015 Olivier Awards. Cinematic set design, slapstick and extreme physicality combine with a soundtrack from Bellini, Stravinsky and Pink Floyd to create this unforgettable piece of dance theatre.

The production won Best New Dance Production at the 2015 Olivier Awards
