Levantes Dance Theatre have a constant enthusiasm for fusing artistic disciplines and indulging in vibrant aesthetics. Our work is inclusive and exploratory with a focus on visuals and movement.
The company was formed to create bold, bright and visually striking performance. We work with a number of exceptional collaborators on each new project. We make bold, bright and beautiful performance for audiences of all ages.
Levantes’ practice is made of three interconnecting stands:
All strands collectively develop the company’s connection with audiences who are seeking something delectably different from the norm.
Introducing… Antigone, Interrupted is a unique online event combining footage from our original stage production, scenes reimagined for the digital medium and real time meet-the-artist conversation. The event will give audiences an opportunity to “meet the characters” and hear from choreographer Joan Clevillé and dancer Solène Weinachter.
Performance elements will be weaved with discussion and opportunities to delve into various topics such as the creation of Antigone, Interrupted, the relevance of a classic story in our contemporary reality, and the role of the arts in our communities moving forwards. This event can be accessed online via home-viewing.
