Our lives are shaped by our connection to the sea. It flows through our memories and our history, with each passing day measured by the turning tide.
Treasure is a fearless and physical dance performance, exploring our innate human fascination with our seas and coastlines. Through powerful movement and beautiful original music, five dancers uncover our deep-buried past, and confront a future shaped by climate change and pollution.
As seas rise and ecosystems start to collapse, Treasure asks: what have we lost? And what happens now?
This emotive work sets urgent questions alongside a rush of explosive contemporary dance that reflects the strength and beauty of the seas.
