Dracula---Curve

This October, Mark Bruce Company’s thrilling, critically acclaimed darkly thrilling dance-theatre production of Dracula production comes to Curve as part of an extensive UK tour.

Jonathan Goddard plays the infamous Vampire Count, whose sinister and ruthless ambitions challenge the very fabric of Victorian society. As his victims and opponents rally against him they must face the darkness and savagery within themselves.

Mark Bruce’s company of ten exceptional dancers bring Bram Stoker’s haunting, erotic tale to life in a heart wrenching and magical dance theatre production.

With an eclectic mix of music from Bach and Mozart to contemporary classical composers György Ligeti (fittingly, born in Transylvania) and Fred Frith, Bruce explores choreographic styles which range from the subtlety of classical etiquette to visceral contemporary dance.

This UK tour will take Dracula to new venues and audiences including Leicester.  “It’s great to be going on the road with Dracula again and I’m delighted to be responding to overwhelming public demand so that we can visit lots of venues around the country that we didn’t have chance to visit last year,” says director, choreographer and artistic director Mark Bruce.  “We’ve got a really strong cast which includes most of the original members, and I’m very much looking forward to sharing with new audiences.”

Winner of the prestigious South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance, this critically acclaimed production is not to be missed.
