In a masterclass of technique across a range of magic disciplines, Ali Cook defies the illusionist norm by showcasing a plethora of astonishments for audiences. Featuring close up magic, mind reading sleight of hand, suggestion, hypnosis, black art, misdirection and many more styles, Principles of Deception is an evening of magical invention and re-invention.
Two brothers, Polyneikes and Eteocles, fight for the crown of Thebes. They kill each other. The rule is strict and clear: whoever dares to bury Polyneikes will be punished with death. Antigone cannot accept the laws that leave one of her brothers unburied and humiliated. State against Ideals, a young woman against a monarch, the whole town, us, inside the arena. How do you get a diamond out of a stone? 'I was born to love, not hate', states Antigone. And there is always a cost for it.

Integrating exciting acrobatic skills with athletic dance in an energetic and thought-provoking performance that explores our obsessive dependence with technology, asking whether our lives are ?in' or ?out' of balance? It is rare nowadays not to ?log in' at every opportunity- the breakfast table, nights out with friends, even in bed! How well connected are you? When and how do we separate ourselves from the virtual chaos surrounding us? Created by Joli Vyann and Jonathan Lunn.
An experiment to separate virtue from wickedness in his own nature results in the respectable Doctor Jekyll releasing the demon within; a malevolent force which will eventually possess him body and soul... Robert Louis Stevenson's classic story has enthralled and fascinated the world for more than a hundred years - perhaps because a Mr. Hyde lurks deep within us all, watching and waiting.
A thrilling adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson's dark psychological fantasy, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll And Mr Hyde immerses you in the myth and mystery of 19th century London's fog-bound streets where love, betrayal and murder lurk at every chilling twist and turn. Gripping, stylish and thought-provoking, this is unmissable theatre. Go on. Treat your dark side!
