MÓTUS presents ‘The Universe & Me – Part II’
Supported through Arts Council England, the Milton Keynes Community Foundation and Milton Keynes Council – this festival is all about being connected, coming together and realising shared physical language alongside appreciating some of the finest performers in the UK on the festival / touring circuit.
The festival presents a wide programme:
Gravity & Levity – ‘Why’
‘Why’? is both a tender and exhilarating aerial duet exploring themes of life, loss, surrender and acceptance in a soft and moving way.
Kapow – ‘Grow’
Grow is a lively, energetic and vibrant dance theatre duet by Kapow. In a playful and touching celebration of nature’s power to rejuvenate itself, take over spaces and grow through the cracks, Kapow combine humanity an a comedic gardening show in their lively duet Grow.
Through order and chaos, humans transforming into weed, seeds and beautiful sunflowers, Grow looks at the relationships we form with one another and the natural world and explores what we all need to thrive.
This show leaves the audience feeling uplifted and inspired to get out and enjoy nature. It speaks about our relationship to one another, to the natural world and of what we all need to thrive.
Glam is a 25 minute vibrant dance and circus cabaret, a humorous outdoor street performance celebrating fabulousness. Audience members are encouraged to join in the fun to dance with the cast in this gloriously fast paced show of acrobatics, hand to hand, disco, feathers, glitter and glamorous make-up!
