James Wilton Dance showcases Leviathan at the Weston Auditorium on the University of Hertfordshire’s de Havilland Campus on Tuesday, November 29.

In Leviathan, Wilton re-imagines Herman Melville’s seminal novel Moby Dick following Ahab, a ship’s captain hell-bent on capturing the great white whale.

A spokeswoman for UH Arts said: “This is a great opportunity to see world-class dance on your doorstep.

“Our performance concludes a national tour which has included DanceEast in Ipswich, and The Place, London, so this is the last chance to see this really exhilarating production.”

Featuring a cast of seven, Wilton’s trademark blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work, Leviathan will have you on the edge of your seat.

The performance will leave you gasping for air under the sheer ferocity of movement, all accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul.

Leviathan is man versus nature – be careful what you fish for!

Tickets cost £10, £8 concessions.

The show starts at 7.30pm.
