Mark Bruce Company
Return to Heaven
Multi award-winning Mark Bruce Company bring their flair for vivid storytelling to a new tale drawn from popular culture and ancient Egyptian myth.
Bruce and his astonishing company of dancers pull you into a cinematic love story full of the rich and visceral imagery that has become their trademark. Presenting a hallucinatory nightmare of unleashed demons, sinister scientists and supernatural forces, two adventurers (Dane Hurst, Eleanor Duval) tumble into a waking dream of a land beyond time and death. Imagine the world of Indiana Jones as viewed through the lens of David Lynch, set to a soundtrack ranging from Penderecki to Lanegan.
Hypnotic, poignant and intricately choreographed, Return to Heaven is a beautiful horror, laced with the darkest of humour.
The ensemble flow like liquid gold across the stage.
Confrontational, dynamic and never, ever dull.
Written, Directed and Choreographed by Mark Bruce
