Dance, architecture, animation and interactive light technologies combine to create a tapestry of exploration and adventure, inspired by Homer’s epic poem, The Odyssey.
Becoming directly involved with a promenade dance performance the audience are free to weave their own experience, threads of movement, structure, and live music draw participants around the striking spaces and hidden corners of a disused former chapel.
NEST was commissioned by new arts organisation Stone Nest, to mark the end of a period of inactivity for the Grade II listed Welsh Chapel on Shaftesbury Avenue. Originally designed by James Cubitt in 1888 and counting 1980’s super-club ‘The Limelight’ amongst its past tenants, NMC produced a multi-sensory promenade performance breathing new life into this beautiful, atmospheric space with its colourful and wide-ranging history.
