More amazing dance coming to Theatre Tropicana.....

Promise of departure is a work that explores vulnerability and strength. How these two factors come to play in the relationships we have and the struggles we are forced to overcome. The promise of connection and the departure from our comfort zone.

In the first half of the performance, choreographed by the regular Panta Rei team of Anne Holck Ekenes and Pia Holden, three dancers express and confront their personal regrets and ….. keep on dancing. In the second half, with guest choreographer Rachel Erdos the same three dancers confront our public vulnerabilities, and find a positive way forward. “Keep on dancing” is their mantra throughout – and how they dance!

Panta Rei Dance Theatre (PRD) is based in Oslo, Norway. The company is known for fast-paced colourful dance theatre performances that are accessible to a wide range of audiences in a variety of theatrical and no-theatrical spaces.

"… Panta Rei, goes right to the heart (again) of pressing social and personal issues with an honesty which is startling.”
Tim Smithies, Carn to Cove, UK

“The traditional stage set-up was challenged when the audience was invited to the stage, allowing for a refreshing and innovative dance theatre experience.”
Sidsel Pape, Scenekunst.no, Norway
