Motionhouse: Scattered

Scattered explores the amazing in the everyday in a meteor shower of unlikely moments.

Scattered combines Motionhouse’s trademark highly physical dance theatre and mesmerizing aerial imagery in a unique interaction between film and live performance.

Scattered explores our relationship with water and how it surrounds us in different forms throughout our lives: in birth water ties us to life and on a more elemental scale, in ice, floods and tides, it can sweep our lives away. Scattered delves into the majesty and savagery of water, a fundamental force in our lives as seven dancers plunge into an ocean, wrestle a raging tide and slide on an avalanche to a frozen landscape of arctic beauty.

With Scattered, Motionhouse is again exploring new artistic dimensions. Performed on a huge curved floor which disappears skywards, Scattered uses projection technology, daring dancing plus aerial harnesses and bungees to create an extraordinary world in which the dancers move seamlessly in, on and through the image.

“THE PERFORMANCE IS PRACTICALLY JET-PROPELLED... THE QUICKSILVER CAST ALMOST NEVER STOPS MOVING. DAZZLING.” - The Times

"A FASCINATING EXPERIENCE... AN ASSAULT ON THE SENSES, AMAZING." - Manchester Evening News
