Electricity in Motion


Inspired by the incredible role of electricity in the human body, Charge is the electrifying new dance-circus show from the internationally-acclaimed touring company, Motionhouse. During a multi-media journey through the electrical charge that sparks human life, to the beating of our hearts and the memories we make, six performers use dance and acrobatics to delve deep into the human body and tell the amazing story of energy in our lives. Digital projections create a magical world on stage where dancers and images interact seamlessly, bringing to life entertaining and emotional stories of energy in our own bodies. In an exciting fusion of art and science, Motionhouse has worked with partners from the University of Oxford on the role of electricity in the human body to inspire the show.

In this film, we see extracts from the production as well as an interview with director and creator of Charge, Kevin Finnan MBE. This is the third element of his 'Earth Trilogy'. Filmed at Warwick Arts Centre, this is the world premiere performance which kicks off an extensive tour across the UK and Europe.
