Most recent performance

There are currently no scheduled performances of Water Stories / Noces / Virtual Descent. It was last on stage 30 October—1 November 2013 as part of the Autumn 2013/14 season.


With a cast of 12 international dancers, the acclaimed National Dance Company Wales brings three vibrant works to the Linbury Studio Theatre. Noces, from celebrated French choreographer Angelin Preljoçaj, uses Stravinsky’s immense score Les Noces as the basis for a piece of tenderness and wild abandon. American choreographer Stephen Petronio’s Water Stories is a magical work framed by the haunting vistas of Welsh lakes and coastlines to specially commissioned music from Atticus Ross. NDCW House Choreographer Eleesha Drennan presents Virtual Descent, which is created to a dramatic percussion concerto by BBC National Orchestra of Wales’ resident composer Mark Bowden.
