National Dance Company Wales GB
Choreography: Marcos Morau
Eight dancers unite into one organism, a kind of centipede with many limbs, as if controlled by a brain. Tundra draws upon Russian Revolution in Soviet times and folkloristic Russian folk dances to reflect the strength of communication, collaboration and listening between dancers. A powerful and engaging piece, like the vastness of this barren landscape itself.
