Receiving rave responses from audiences across the globe, Motionhouse shows fuse passionate physicality, powerful narrative, incredible digital imagery and emotive sound scores to surprise and delight.

A wide ranging education and participatory programme runs parallel to Motionhouse’s performance work. The company’s approach to participation is inclusive, with the underlying ethos that anyone can dance. The company runs regular classes from its home base in Leamington Spa, offering developmental and creative opportunities for children and young people to dance.
