Puzzle Creature

A multi-disciplinary dance work from Neon Dance

Barriers between artist and audience are removed in Puzzle Creature, an immersive dance experience by Neon Dance. Forget your mundane everyday and step inside an inflatable dome, to be transfixed by performers wearing intriguing artefacts, moving to an evocative new score featuring integrated British and Japanese Sign Language.

Featuring objects by artist Ana Rajcevic, and inspired by the death-eluding architecture designs of Arakwara and Madeline Gins, director Adrienne Hart has collaborated with three exceptional dance artists to create this compelling piece.

Accompanied by a newly commissioned score for eight speakers by composer Sebastian Reynolds, this unique performance combines British and Japanese Sign Language and audio description alongside the music.

Step inside Puzzle Creature and join us for what will be a transformative experience.

Ages 14+ (Under 18’s to be accompanied by an adult)
