Mark Bruce’s Dracula—

MarkBruceCompany_Dracula1

With music written by Mark Bruce and published by Mute Song, the Mark Bruce company’s award winning production of Dracula is touring the UK from September 26th until December 4th.

Jonathan Goddard plays the infamous Vampire Count, whose sinister and ruthless ambitions challenge the very fabric of Victorian society. As his victims and opponents rally against him they must face the darkness and savagery within themselves.

Bruce’s company of ten exceptional dancers bring Bram Stoker’s haunting, erotic tale to life in a heart wrenching and magical dance theatre production. With an eclectic mix of music from Bach and Mozart to Ligeti and Fred Frith, Bruce explores choreographic styles ranging from the subtlety of classical etiquette to visceral contemporary dance.

**** “I’d be surprised if I saw a more entertaining piece of dance theatre this year. Kill for a ticket.” The Observer

**** “Bruce and his extraordinarily gifted dancers navigate Bram Stoker’s hellish narrative with near-hallucinatory dexterity… it raises the bar of dance theatre very high.” The Guardian

**** “‘This take on popular culture’s most famous bloodsucker is a class act.” The Times
