Buxton Opera House: Charge

Share With Friends

Premiering in October 2017, Charge, Motionhouse’s incredible new multi-media show is about energy.

From the electrical charge that sparks human life, to the beating of our hearts and the memories we make, six performers use dance alongside circus skills and staggering acrobatics to delve deep into the human body, tracing the incredible story of energy in our lives.

Digital projections create a world on stage where dancers and images interact seamlessly, bringing to life stories of energy in our own bodies, humans as energy manipulators and the Earth’s weather systems. In an exciting fusion of art and science, Motionhouse has worked with partners from the University of Oxford on the role of electricity in the human body to inspire the show. Charge is the third element of Kevin Finnan’s ‘Earth Trilogy’, developing on themes explored in Scattered (2009) and Broken (2013) about our relationship with water and the Earth.
