Under the strong direction of Kevin Finnan and Louise Richards, Motionhouse have led the way for UK dance companies to develop successful work for outdoor festivals. The company creates and delivers a large range of dance performances, accaimed for striking use of imagery, theatricality and immediate impact.
Motionhouse are constantly experimenting with the performance environment and creating dance in unusual contexts - for parks, beaches, shopping centres and stately homes alongside more traditional venues. From full length touring works to shorter festival performances, to large scale dance spectacles, Motionhouse dancers perform alongside aerialists, cranes, JCB diggers and singers, on stunning sets, in breathtaking places and in the public eye.
A wide ranging education and participatory programmes complements and enhances the performance work.
