Fri 6 Mar | Doors 7.45pm for 8pm | £12/£11 U16

A breathtaking evening of dance by one of the UK’s most in-demand companies. 

James Wilton’s distinctive movement style is raw, powerful and dynamic. Clearly influenced by martial arts, breakdance and capoeira; high-energy episodes are juxtaposed with meaningful moments of calm and reflection.

“a bold, fresh, innovative, modern piece of work with real intent and ambition”

Featuring six engaging dancers with exceptional physical skill, Last Man Standing is loosley based on the Terry Pratchett novel ‘ Last Hero’ and explores the fragility of human existence. The dancers use their full arsenal of throws, lifts and slides in a desperate, determined fight to survive

James Wilton is a multi-award winning choreographer whose work has wide appeal. His work has toured internationally and in 2010 he won the inaugural Sadler’s Wells Global Dance Contest. Further accolades have come through support from prominent organisations including The Royal Opera House, Sadler’s Wells, The Place and South East Dance. James’s choreography has been performed by companies including Scottish Dance Theatre and Opera Graz (Austria), and in the opening ceremony of the 2013 Rugby League World Cup.

“The new mover and shaker of the contemporary dance world” Libby Costelo,

An intense, compelling and moving experience sure to leave you hoping for more.
