Promise Of Departure

Promise Of Departure


A high-paced Norwegian dance production will be performed at Weston’s Tropicana next month, and the Mercury has tickets to see it up for grabs.

Promise Of Departure has been co-produced by Panta Rei Dansetheater and Teater Innlandet.

It explores themes of vulnerability and strength, as well as how the two factors can affect relationships, through high-intensity dance routines.

Created in collaboration with British choreographer Rachel Erdos, the energetic dancing challenges performers to share personal stories and push their physicality and flexibility to the limit.

A Theatre Orchard spokesman said: “Exploring the promise of connection and the departure from our comfort zone, this is a strong, physical, thought-provoking performance with fantastic music.”

The show is touring across the South West throughout April and May, performing in areas including Cornwall and Devon.

Also heading to the venue in May is comedy duo Living Spit’s hilarious One Man & His Cow.

Written and performed entirely in rhyme, the show follows a young farmer’s love for his prize cow and the annoyance it causes his disapproving family.

Promise Of Departure will be performed at Theatre Tropicana, in Marine Parade, at 7.30pm on May 3.

Tickets, priced £10, are available online.

The Mercury has teamed up with Theatre Orchard to offer readers two pairs of tickets to see Promise Of Departure.
