FOLLOWING the critically-acclaimed Love and War and Sea of Bones, the Mark Bruce Company will perform its new dance production at Bristol’s Tobacco Factory Theatre.
Made in Heaven merges ancient themes with the dystopia of contemporary life in Mark Bruce’s surreal world ruled by a blinded cop and a malicious virgin.
The savage and darkly-comic production interrogates the idea of heaven and features images as striking as a chain gang dancing on the edge of an inferno and a prairie girl dreaming of other lives.
It also contains music ranging from Debussy and Lead Belly to Queens of the Stone Age and The Black Keys.
Mark Bruce has choreographed, directed and danced internationally for more than 20 years and has previously collaborated with artists as diverse as PJ Harvey, Rosas and the Bern Ballet.
Made in Heaven will be performed at the theatre in Raleigh Road on May 18-20 at 7.30pm.
Tickets, priced £11-13, are available from the box office on 0117 9020344 or tobaccofactorybristol.com
