Photo Flash: First Look at Mark Bruce Company's DRACULA

Mark Bruce Company has built up a formidable reputation for critically acclaimed, uncompromising dance-theatre work which often takes the audience on a roller coaster ride into dark and mysterious territory. Productions such as Sea of Bones and 2012's Made In Heaven fascinated and entertained audiences all over the country.

This year's new production, 'DRACULA', promises to be thrilling, dark and exciting; directed and choreographed by the company's Artistic Director, Mark Bruce, the company of ten exceptional dancers bring Bram Stoker's 1897 haunting, erotic tale to life in a heart wrenching, magical dance theatre production. With an eclectic mix of music from Bach and Mozart to contemporary classical composers György Ligeti (fittingly, born in Transylvania) and Fred Frith, Bruce explores choreographic styles which range from the subtlety of classical etiquette to visceral contemporary dance.

One of the UK's most highly regarded performers, Jonathan Goddard, plays the infamous Vampire Count, whose sinister and ruthless ambitions challenge the very fabric of Victorian society. As Dracula's victims and opponents rally against him, they are forced to face the darkness and savagery within themselves.
