Led by internationally acclaimed Circa and electronic musician Lapalux, Depart will embark on a three date tour. Commencing as part of the Roots and Routes season at Hull UK City of Culture 2017, Depart will play in the city’s General Cemetery (18 - 21 May), the production will then take over the Woodvale Cemetery at Brighton Festival (25 - 28 May) and finally Blackpool’s Stanley Park (1 - 4 June).
Inspired by the legend of Orpheus and Eurydice, Depart takes audiences on a path through the underworld in atmospheric locations. Transforming these evocative environments, world renowned circus artists will dance above the heads of a roaming audience to create genre-defying spectacles. With direction from Yaron Lifschitz and a creative team including Lapalux, Depart brings together acrobats, aerialists, local community choirs and video artists for an inimitable, immersive evening of entertainment.
