New for 2019, TREASURE is a fearless and physical contemporary dance work that delves deep into our past, exploring our innate and powerful relationship to the sea.
Marine fossils transport us to a distant world of ancient creatures, fighting for survival in a strange and volatile environment. Human curiosity leads us to collect these fragile fossils, keeping their stories safe for the future. But are they simply keepsakes, reflections of our own memories, or a warning for what lies ahead?
In an uncertain environment where resources are pushed to the brink and marine life faces new challenges every day, Treasure is a defiantly positive dance performance that celebrates the beauty and mystery of the sea.
Supported by Arts Council England and Bath Dance
