Tomorrow inhabits the murderous world of Macbeth. Building on her recent, landmark production of the play (co-directed with Carrie Cracknell), Lucy Guerin’s dance work gives physical life to the psychological conflict that led a man to murder. With original music by electronica artist Scanner.

The mystery of the unknown that inspired ancient explorers infuses Shobana Jeyasingh’s Terra Incognita. This is a dance journey propelled by Gabriel Prokofiev’s driving score, full of intricately detailed movement, surprising twists and turns, and intriguing discoveries. 

 "One of Shobana Jeyasingh’s best works"
The Guardian

At the heart of this programme is Rambert’s party piece. Itzik Galili’s A Linha Curva is a spectacular, sexy, percussion-fuelled explosion of samba-flavoured dance, and helped the company win the 2010 Olivier Award for Outstanding Achievement in Dance.

Tomorrow is developed from Lucy Guerin and Carrie Cracknell’s Macbeth, a Young Vic/Birmingham Repertory Theatre/HOME co-production, in association with Lucy Guerin Inc. Its original development was supported by the Jerwood Studio at Sadler’s Wells. The work is part of Shakespeare 400 celebrations.

“Twenty-eight dancers pumping limbs like athletes, heavy-duty percussion exciting the blood, dramatic lighting effects and a whole lot of energy. Who can resist?”
