We’ve teamed up with Wales’ exciting new dance theatre company, Cascade, to offer readers chance to win a pair of tickets and interval drinks to their first visit to Torch Theatre, Milford Haven on Thursday November 9 at 7.30pm.
This is what the critics are saying about Cascade’ autumn programme:
“Three contrasting but highly enjoyable pieces, ranging from the irreverent to the elegiac; skilfully performed, and conceived in such a way as to engage all but the most stubbornly resistant choreo-phobe.” Othniel Smith,British Theatre Guide
“Artistic director Phil Williams has created a company with strong and welcoming personality, a great joy to watch and absorb.”Michael Kelligan, Theatre in Wales

Cascade Dance Theatre company, opened to rave reviews at Taliesin Arts Centre, Swansea and is now on the road for an eight venue tour.
Artistic Director Phil Williams said, “We have two Welsh pieces and one international piece. I’ve known and worked with Jem Treays for a long time and his interest lies in a theatrical style of dance, so I thought it would be a good team-up. We discussed what we were going to do, and that each piece should be very different, and Jem developed a piece for four dancers and a puppet that’s called Poppet.”
“The middle dance of the autumn programme is Quite Discontinuous by Dutch choreographer Jasper van Luijk at Chapter in Cardiff a few years ago as part of the Dance Roads project and immediately saw it as a great piece and a style we don’t see in Wales. It was intelligent, thought-provoking, intense, wonderfully creative and an exquisite piece that stood out for me. He’s reworked it for two dancers performed by two men on some tour dates, and two women on others, so that gives the piece different flavours. Jasper is a very intelligent artist who is very busy over in Amsterdam so we’re lucky to get him here.”
“My own work is called Collidron and it’s inspired by Einstein’s theory of general relativity. As it’s the centenary of the theory I’m using it as a starting point, rather than trying to interpret the theory as dance. It provides me with images to work with, how things move together, planets and gravity, energy colliding. It’s a moving tour de force of contemporary dance. It’ll also have a percussive live score by Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama graduate Harriet Riley, so we’re very lucky.”
