Time 19:30
Date 24/04/19
Price £21

With its stark monochrome design, vital movement and urgent soundscore, On The High Road conjures a feverish end-of-epoch atmosphere. Wholly original, edgy and enthralling visual theatre.

Dates and Times: Wed 24 & Thu 25 Apr, 19:30.

A disparate group of people are caught in a storm, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Whether old or young, pilgrim or party-goer, they must all seek refuge under the same roof. As the night draws in, they dream, pray, dance and fight – all the time testing the limits of what little space they have, waiting for the dawn to come.

A richly layered score featuring manipulated weather sounds, fugal piano textures and Irish folk singing drives the company’s intricate movement.

Directed by Suzy Willson, with music by Paul Clark and performed by a company of outstanding dancers, actors and musicians, On the High Road’s blend of movement and music defies categorisation.

For over two decades, Clod Ensemble has developed an original performance language, creating provocative, finely crafted work, ambitious in scale and concept. Clod Ensemble regularly presents in London, across the UK and internationally.

On the High Road has design by Sarah Blenkinsop and Kate Lane, and lighting by Hansjörg Schmid. The production features Thomas McCarthy, and the photography is by Hugo Glendinning.
