Motionhouse creates world class dance-circus productions that tour extensively to rave reviews across the globe. Their stunning productions integrate athletic physicality, powerful narrative, and an emotive sound score, taking inspiration from common human concerns and our connection to the world in which we live.

A whirlwind of excitement and thrilling entertainment for all ages, Torque is a fast-paced show which sees four performers dancing in an extraordinary partnership with two JCB construction vehicles in a display of strength and agility. The piece premiered at the International Dance Festival Birmingham in 2016 and will make its U.S. debut during the 2022 Dollar Bank Three Rivers Arts Festival.

Motionhouse is supported by Arts Council England with additional support from Warwick District Council and is a Hippodrome Associate Artist.
