A deliberately graphic and honest solo dance performance, Monster Body is the latest creation by emerging choreographer and performer Atlanta Eke.

Exploring a political imagination, life and death, dreams and consumerism, Monster Body is a saturation of the senses. It ultimately exposes the ‘monster’ that lies in the space between the dancer and the audience. As when an eagle and a lion fuse to create a mythic creature, this performance explores the situation of being in the theatre together, the relationship to each other and the space around us.
