James Wilton Dance: Leviathan

James Wilton Dance: Leviathan


Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton returns to Leeds with a re-imagining of Herman Melville's seminal novel Moby Dick. Age guide 12 years+ Leviathan follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab's crew is drawn in by the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction. Wilton's trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul. Leviathan is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.
