Take the plunge, the water’s lovely, taste the wine and the salty bubbly…

On a storm filled night when clouds were the colour of bad tempers, the briny sea separated Neptune from his son Neleus. But it’s been years… and today, something has washed up on the beach that is neither fish nor bird nor boat. It’s the morning of The Neptunalia Ball, but what or who has arrived? Grab your walking boots as dancing shoes and join us for a maritime feast like no other!
Told through dance, story and installation, this is an odyssey of growing up and leaving home. Of prodigal sons and daughters, tattoo parlours, journeys and mysteries. Leaving home is a story we all relate to: to search out independence, to support ourselves, to be closer to work, family, the sea; to travel in the name of a better life. Through wit, warmth, beauty and dancing, Cornwall’s leading dance company will take us all on a journey in which we’ll recognise a Neptune, a mother, and a child. A delight for all the family!

Neptunalia is premiering at Trebah Gardens, as part of the Salt 2016 Landscape Dance Festival from July 26th – August 11th 2016.
