Founded in 1988 and based in Leamington Spa, Motionhouse have been creating world-class dance-circus productions that tour extensively around the world. From full-length productions for theatre touring to a range of work for the outdoors and large-scale performance events, their sell-out productions integrate athletic physicality, powerful narrative, incredible digital imagery and emotive sound scores.
Motionhouse’s work takes its inspiration from common human concerns and our connection to the world in which we live, with recent works exploring flooding, the pressure of time, fear and captivity, and our relationship with water, the Earth and energy. Their dancers perform on stunning sets, alongside JCB diggers, with aerialists and singers, in incredible settings and to breath-taking effect.
Motionhouse deliver an excellent programme of education and training at our studio in Leamington Spa, throughout the UK and further afield, delivering a wide range of learning and training projects, in schools and in the community, for students and for young professionals, focusing on skills-development and creativity.
Motionhouse is supported by Arts Council England with additional support from Warwick District Council and is a Birmingham Hippodrome Associate Company.
