‘Captive’: Motionhouse

Four performers use an exciting blend of dance, acrobatics and aerial work inside a large cage. Disorientated and shaken, they use their skill and instinct to survive in this emotionally charged and athletic piece.

Inspired by Rainer Maria Rilke’s poem The Panther, this powerfully emotional outdoor show explores notions of captivity. Extremely physical, Captive is a thrilling blend of dance and acrobatics with a dynamic narrative exploring human relationships in captivity.

Captive premiered on 25 May 2013, Salisbury Festival in the UK and has been touring ever since, visiting numerous European festivals as well as North Africa and the USA.
