Salomé

 2019/2020
A twisted, dark story of rejection, religion, lust and death. In collaboration with live classical music performed by Bowjangles.
 
Co- produced by The Cockpit in partnership with
St Mary In The Castle and The Place.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s play, this telling of Salomé explores the shifting relationships of power between the characters of Salomé, King Herod and Jokanaan, focussing on themes of corruption, desire and divinity. 

A rich and sensual dance theatre experience with live music and original score by Phillip O'Meara. The company of seven 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.

 

'Lindsay Kemp lives in this absorbing hour of dance-theatre, as do Aubrey Beardsley's Illustrations for Wilde's Salome, and Wilde himself, thanks to choreographers who dare to be blatant.'

Barbara Newman -Dancing Times

 

'EDIFICE's Salomé is full of sexual energy and spectacular dancing. You’re unlikely to see a hotter dance sequence this year.'

Jonathan Kemp - Queer Guru 

'It was a clever idea to perform Salomé in the round, bringing the intimacy of the story up front and centre in this immersive experience.'

Graham Watts - Dance Tabs

 

'It is raw, punchy and intimate dance theatre that was absorbing, stimulating and entertaining. The company certainly seems to be on an upward curve and I am keen to see what more they can bring to their repertoire both on stage and film.'  

Graham Watts - Dance Tabs

'An interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.'
