The Furnace: Morris Offspring, Faustus
Each generation devours the old to forge the new until all that is left is tradition itself.
Surging with hot, raw energy, the unstoppable machinery of Morris Offspring, driven by the mighty sound of folk powerhouse Faustus, creates a rare jewel. This spirited 14-piece dance company collides head on with the earthy sound of Benji Kirkpatrick, Paul Sartin (Bellowhead) and Saul Rose (WarHorse), capturing the duel Morris traits of power and grace. The Furnace is all at once joyful, arty, ballsy, dark, and elegant. Expect rich vocal harmony, cracking tunes, speed, sticks and bounce. This is an explosive mix - thoroughly captivating and downright celebratory.
A joyful, energetic and unique celebration of the power and grace of English traditional dance. A reaffirmation that the tradition is alive and evolving. A exuberant spectacle of vitality and passionate dance wrapped in a cloak of beautiful music, stunning singing and heart-stopping stories.
