Multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville's seminal novel, Moby Dick.
Featuring a cast of 7, Wilton's trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, Leviathan will have you on the edge of your seat. It will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.
Leviathan is man versus nature; be careful what you fish for.
After graduating from London Contemporary Dance School in 2009 James founded James Wilton Dance. Since, James' work has toured to South Korea, China, the USA, Dubai, India, Germany, Austria, Poland, Switzerland, Malta, Italy, Spain, France, Sweden and Denmark and has also won awards at the Hannover, Bern and Masdanza Choreography competitions, as well as the Sadler's Wells Global Dance Contest.
