Clod Ensemble is one of those innovative and anarchic companies thrusting its way through the boundaries of theatreThe Guardian

About the event

A disparate group of people are caught in a storm, somewhere in the middle of nowhere. Whether old or young, pilgrim or party-goer, they must all seek refuge under the same roof. As the night draws in, they dream, pray, dance and fight – all the time testing the limits of what little space they have – waiting for the dawn to come.

With its stark monochrome design, vital movement and pulsating sound-score, Clod Ensemble’s latest production revels in Weimar-esque ambiguity and raciness, conjuring a feverish end-of-epoch atmosphere. Wholly original, edgy and enthralling visual theatre.

Directed by Suzy Willson, with music by Paul Clark and performed by a company of outstanding dancers and actors, On the High Road’s turbulent blend of movement and music defies categorisation.

For over two decades Clod Ensemble has developed a highly original performance language, creating provocative, finely crafted work, ambitious in scale and concept.

Clod Ensemble regularly presents in London, across the UK and internationally in theatres, dance houses, galleries and public spaces including Sadler’s Wells, Tate Modern, The Lowry Salford, Wales Millennium Centre, Serralves Museum Porto and Public Theater New York.
