“Captive” is extremely demanding from a physical point of view and emotionally intense; it mixes elements of contemporary dance and acrobatics in an original show, inspired by the poem “The Panther” by Rainer Maria Rilke. At an alert pace, the four British dancers explore the topic of captivity in the limited space of a steel cage.

“From the beginning of the piece, when the performers strain against their recent captivity with disbelief and raw emotion, to the final unsettling resolution (which I won’t give away here), there is as much to trigger your thought process as there is to mesmerize your eyes.” (Herald Tribune)
