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.
Tickets are £8 for under-16s and £12.50 for adults. To purchase, please visit our website. or call in at the Barn.

Thursday May 9th, 7:30pm, Dronfield Hall Barn
Five years ago, James’s best friend Tom was diagnosed with heart cancer and told he had three months to live. Tom's last wish was to be given a full viking burial by his two best mates, Sarah and James.
This is the remarkable, hilarious and heart-lifting story of how James and Sarah actually gave their best mate the send-off he wanted... and all the trouble they got into when they did.
‘As accomplished storytelling as you could hope to see. To call it a comedy about friendship, mourning and terminal illness – which on one level it is – would in no way convey what a joyous thing it is.’
★★★★★ The Stage
‘Whatever the facts, there’s truth in Team Viking: real grief, still
raw; real heart, still healing; and a reminder that life really is for the living... beautifully calibrated.’
★★★★ Fest Magazine
‘Brilliant storytelling... among the most intimate and emotional in this year’s Festival. Beautifully written and superbly performed.
★★★★ Ed Fest Mag
‘Equal parts sad, funny and ridiculous... a show of real courage
combined with warmth and lyricism.’
