A twisted, dark story of rejection, religion, lust and death. In collaboration with Hastings Philharmonic. Co- produced by The Cockpit in partnership with St Mary In The Castle.
'An interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.'
The Evening Standard
A rich and sensual dance theatre experience with live music and original score by Phillip O'Meara. Based on Oscar Wilde's Salome, the company of six take you on an extraordinary and dark journey where music, contemporary dance and latin ballroom bring to life the characters and themes of Wilde’s tragedy.
EDIFICE is co-directed by choreographer- dancer duo Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn. Together they have developed a hybrid language for choreography that combines the speed, passion and connection of ballroom, with the fluidity, freedom and connection of contemporary dance
'Inventive dance theatre, with incredible talent.’
EDIFICE offer workshops, open company classes and educational visits alongside touring. For more information click the link below.
