Black Marrow

Black Marrow

Southbank Centre · 21 MAR - 21 MAR

Transformative choreographers Erna Ómarsdóttir and Damien Jalet ask how far we will go for oil, in a no-holds-barred contemporary ritual.


Black Marrow interrogates the apocalyptic bond between humans and nature.

Dancers pound the stage in a united trance to depict a world where instincts have been industrialised and the body transforms, mutates, exults and fights for its survival.

To haunting music by Ben Frost, the dancers take the shape of fossils, industrial machines, pagan gods and carefree golden youth.

Exploring our tumultuous relationship with the planet, Black Marrow asks how we can save it – and ourselves.
