Dance The Theatre


How close can we let someone be?
Do we choose to show ourselves or do our actions expose and betray us?

Closer is an emotive story of secrets and obsessions; the suppression of primitive desires and deviances in the service of coexistence. It challenges the traditional relationship between performer and audience, creating an exciting new dynamic that turns the idea of ‘us’ and ‘them’ on its head.

Told with a language combining dance, physical theatre and circus, Thomas Noone re-invents what we think of as dance. As always, Noone’s theatre is dynamic, engaging and intriguing with a sense of spontaneity that is brilliantly showcased by an international cast of supremely talented dancers.
