In a world where one mans blood is another mans elixir, Lo-Giudice Dance conjures a nameless beast lurking in the folklore, history and soil of the North, channelling its wild romance and mystery into a work in which dancers perform heart pounding choreography to the music of Einar Selvik.
Interweaving themes of carnal lust and the divine, brutal ferocity and the human soul, dancers knot physical and emotively powerful dance theatre with heart stopping sound to create a sensual and spiritual experience, taking stories and runes from ancient wet stone, forgotten manuscripts and mystical ceremony... catapulting them into audiences eyes, ears and souls.
