Under the direction of performer/designer Eleni Edipidi, Levantes Dance Theatre creates theatrical contemporary circus which is inclusive and visually strong.
The company’s latest touring project is Run Rabbit Run, a mid-scale production available from Autumn 2024 which brings together physical theatre, quirky characterisation, vibrant aesthetics and aerial choreography. The darkly humorous storyline reveals family secrets, some familiar, some mysterious, nailing some home truths as dinner is served. The professional cast of six multi-disciplined performers will be joined by a group of over 60s from the local community. Music is by Manchester’s finest folk-hop band Honeyfeet and costumes are by Abby Grewcock.
Other touring projects by Levantes include Canapé Art, an artistic series in different settings built around the concept of identically dressed performers. High Tea (With A Twist), performed around an elaborately laid tea table, is a small scale outdoor spectacular, and the Canapé Art Walkabout is a colourful addition to any event. A revival of the company’s production THE BAND is touring in autumn 2024.
