Dance the Orange tells a story of inevitability of loss and the unpredictable nature of love. Orpheus, a famous mythological musician, looses the love of his life after a tragic accident on their wedding night. In his pain, he travels down into the underworld to get her back. With permission from the great King of the Underworld, Hades, he begins his quest to find his lost love. In doing so Orpheus befriends the Child-Queen Persephone as she guides and protects him through the three hellish realms of the Underworld.

Dance the Orange is an event that pushes the boundaries of what live performance can be, pulling inspiration from the poetry of Rainer Maria Rilke, the artwork of William Blake and the musicality of Daniel Johnston. Featuring video projections, installation, live music and the simple magic of bodies in space, you will step into a world of spectacular transformation.
