Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick.

Leviathan follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale: Moby Dick, a beast as vast and dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining.

Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of their captain, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction.

Featuring a cast of six, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work will have you on the edge of your seat.

It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.
 
Leviathan is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.

“Extraordinary.”
The Stage

Commissioned by: The Barbican Theatre, Plymouth University, Plymouth Culture and Ocean City Festival, Swindon Dance, The Place, Blackpool Grand, Barnsley Civic, The Gulbenkian and BBC Performing Arts Fund, with support from Arts Council England, Grants for the Arts.
