Invisible Cities, inspired by the book of the same name by Italo Calvino, is an extremely powerful and dynamic production which brings the spirited conversations between Marco Polo and Kublai Khan to life.
It not only depicts the spectacular visions of Marco Polo as he describes them to Kublai Khan but also subtly develops the changing relationship between the two men.
The performance takes the audience on a spectacular journey to the many cities that Marco Polo describes.
Visions of landscapes and cities are miraculously created through the unique merging of theatre, dance, music, and film projection.
The combination of a very different venue and seating layout allows the audience to be fully immersed in the performance.
The moods of the various cities are portrayed by stunning stage design, architecture, lighting and film projection techniques. Marco Polo and Kublai Khan are excellent in their roles and take full command of the performance area.
The dancers are exceptional in their abilities and the choreography is strong and powerful reflecting the mood and dynamics of the performance.
The excellent choice of music adds another layer in creating the overall experience.
Not wanting to give much more away… It is an absolutely stunning production that is certainly a ‘must-see’ event !!!
