Tundra is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from history books about Russian folk dance, the USSR and revolution.
Marcos Morau's bold style draws inspiration from art and cinema. Tundra takes old ideas and uses contemporary dance to give them renewed meaning.
Marcos Morau's first UK creation Tundra is a Russian folk-inspired, intoxicating masterpiece of choreography. Eight dancers move as one to form a synchronized stage image that delivers both mesmerizing beauty and almost machine-like precision.
National Dance Company Wales creates innovative and engaging dance that brings talented dancers and choreographers from across Wales and the world to make work for stages large and small, in unusual spaces and online.
NDCWales presents opportunities for the public to experience contemporary dance in different ways. Through participation in various engagement activities on tour, such as workshops or interactive performances, audience members experience an introduction to the art form in a relaxed and open environment.
NDCWales has toured widely across the UK and internationally, most recently the company has toured to Hong Kong, Hungary, Germany and Austria with Caroline Finn's Folk, The Green House; Marcos Morau's Tundra and Lee Johnston's They Seek to Find the Happiness They Seem.
