Find yourself in an immersive theatrical experience that takes in 4,000 years of dance culture

Overview

It’s 1988, the second summer of love. Martin Green (now fearless inventor and accordion player in folk trio Lau) is morris dancing at dawn while the ravers are still going in the next field. What’s the difference? What’s the same?

You are coming with us. Martin Green leads a crew of world-class musicians and performers in a mind-altering, bespoke audience experience, brought to life by superstar director Wils Wilson, that asks if trance state is actually part of the culture of these islands, and we’ve just forgotten it. Or denied it.

Pass through The Portal and become part of this beautiful and exhilarating world of music, movement and ritual.

There ain’t no party like an experimental morris dance theatrical rave party.

Here in its London premiere, The Portal was created by Martin Green, directed by Wils Wilson. Featuring original music by Martin Green and James Holden, with live performance from BBC Award winner Brìghde Chaimbeul.

Age Recommendation: 16+
