LEVIATHAN follows Ahab, a ship captain hell-bent on capturing the white whale, Moby Dick, a beast as vast and as dangerous as the sea itself, yet serene and beautiful beyond all imagining. Ahab’s crew are drawn into the unhinged charisma of this madman, blindly following him on his perilous adventure towards almost certain destruction, all dreaming to rule the world, to be the master of their destinies, to be more powerful than God.
LEVIATHAN is the epic re-imagining of Herman Melville’s seminal novel, Moby Dick, by multi-award winning choreographer James Wilton. Featuring a cast of 6 world-class dancers, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and edge of the seat partner-work, will leave audiences gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of overwhelmingly powerful movement, all accompanied by Wilton’s signature electro-rock soundtrack.
