Motionhouse: Nobody at Blackpool Grand Theatre, Blackpool 19 March 2024 Tickets from £14.50 — Book now

A thrilling dance-circus show, Motionhouse’s Nobody explores the tension between our inner lives and how we make sense of the world around us. This intoxicating and spellbinding dance show leaps into Blackpool Grand Theatre this March – so if you haven’t seen this spectacular performance before, seize the opportunity.

Nobody is an exhilarating piece that sees the company reach new levels with their raw physical strength and gravity-defying choreography.

Brimming with visual magic, seven dancers move around the stage on a journey of self-discovery. With spectacular strength and elegance, the ensemble finds courage and support in one another. Meanwhile, a group of curious crows watch and question every move they make – the birds representing the restrictive, inner part of themselves that they must resist.

Using illusion-like digital projections and a shape-shifting set, the world on stage transforms right before your eyes. Nothing appears quite as it seems – as the performers navigate their ever-changing reality and the world pulls apart around them. Building on Motionhouse Artistic Director Kevin Finnan’s previous examination of the human condition and our place in the world, Nobody is an exhilarating piece that sees the company reach new levels with their raw physical strength and gravity-defying choreography.

If you haven’t seen this spectacular performance before, seize the opportunity.

Established in 1988, Motionhouse are one of Europe’s most thrilling contemporary dance companies. Front-runners in creating productions that seamlessly fuse breathtaking physicality and powerful storytelling with incredible digital backdrops and evocative soundscapes, the company create world-class dance-circus performances – always taking their inspiration from shared human experience and our impact and connection to the world in which we live. Recent works by the company have explored the pressure of time, fear and captivity, flooding and our relationship with the Earth.
