Backstage tour of theatre to inspire future stars

Have your say

Dancing construction workers may seem like an unusual mix, but stick with it.

On Feburary 12 The Point will be playing host to ZoieLogic Dance Theatre’s production of SAFE.

Set against the imagined backdrop of New York’s Empire State Building, five male performers inhabit the world of the heroic construction workers of 1930; the men whose skill and bravery brought the build to fruition.

The themes of masculinity and fragility are explored with muscular choreography and an intense atmosphere of teamwork.

A visceral original music score and an industrial set provide a backdrop to the action, where the characters are pushed to their limits and build lasting bonds under pressure during the job of a lifetime.

SAFE is on at The Point, Eastleigh on February 12 at 7.30pm.
