Mark Bruce Company to Present DRACULA at the Exeter Northcott Theatre in October
"Welcome to my house. Come freely. Go safely; and leave something of the happiness you bring." Sink your teeth into this haunting, heart wrenching dance theatre production from the Mark Bruce Company.
Jonathan Goddard plays the infamous Vampire Count, whose sinister and ruthless ambitions
challenge the very fabric of Victorian society. As his victims and opponents rally against him they must face the darkness and savagery within themselves.
Mark Bruce said "I think an idea of Dracula is embedded in us mainly through the movies. He is an enigmatic character with many of the qualities mentioned above. He is often just a presence alluded to - perhaps only a darker side to ourselves."
Bruce's company of ten exceptional dancers bring Bram Stoker's haunting, erotic tale to life in a heart wrenching and magical dance theatre production. With an eclectic mix of music from Bach and Mozart to Ligetti and Fred Frith, Bruce explores choreographic styles ranging from the subtlety of classical etiquette to visceral contemporary dance.
"The dance sequences that animate these dreams are clever and musical, performed by an excellent cast. And it must be said, there's no other British choreographer producing work quite like it."
