Edifice Dance Theatre’s ‘Salomé’


Ashton Court Arts Mansion

£12 plus small booking fee

Presented by Theatre Orchard

A twisted, dark story of rejection, religion, lust and death, from UK based dance theatre company Edifice, whose sell-out shows have been performed internationally and their first dance film ‘Edifice’ has over 8 million views worldwide.

Based on Oscar Wilde’s Salomé, the company takes you on an extraordinary journey where music, ballroom, latin and contemporary dance bring to life the characters and themes of Wilde’s tragedy in a rich and sensual dance theatre experience with live classical music and an electronic original score by Phillip O’Meara.

Edifice Dance Theatre is co-directed by choreographer-dancer duo Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn, who both specialise in Latin, Ballroom and Contemporary dance. Together they have developed a hybrid choreography that combines the speed, passion and connection of ballroom, with the fluidity, freedom and connection of contemporary dance.

“An audacious, thrilling, brilliant, emotion-packed,technically perfect and riveting evening” Authentic Blue
