    Beowulf

    Thu 7 Mar 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 16+

    Before we begin, I should warn you: This story ends with a dragon. But every story ends with a dragon. If you make it to ‘Happily Ever After’ and there isn’t a dragon nearby … the story isn’t over yet.

    Seth Kriebel’s Beowulf is an interactive performance-game inviting you to explore the world of a legendary story from our ancient past … without leaving your seat.

    An evocative soundscape accompanies your journey through strange lands, discovering forgotten monsters and bringing a Viking hero’s tale back to life 1,000 years after his adventures. Each show is unique, guided by your choices… illuminating the original epic and asking why, after all these years, we still tell each other stories about monsters that lurk in dark.

    The Hotel Experience

    Thu 14 Mar 7.30pm | Full £10 | Conc £6 | Age 12+

    A man checks into a hotel the night before his wedding, unaware that things may not be as they seem.

    As the clock ticks the walls around him seem to blur and dissolve. As fragments of his memories begin to tumble into the room, the hotel staff are transformed into past friends and lovers as they step through the walls and into his Hotel Experience. They fall from the ceilings, crawl out from under the bed and step out of wardrobes to face him once more with full force and in vivid colours. His stay becomes a night of doubt, hope, crisis, and unexpected encounters. When the sun rises, he has an important decision to make.

    Check-in to your local venue to watch your friends and family guest star alongside our four mesmerising dancers in this extraordinary night of dance. Come and find out why Lîla Dance are rapidly becoming one of Britain’s fastest growing dance companies, with a reputation for redefining community involvement in professional productions.
