Founded in 1988 by Louise Richards and Kevin Finnan MBE, Motionhouse create world class dance-circus productions that tour extensively to rave reviews across the globe. From full-length productions for theatre touring to flexible work for the outdoors and large-scale performance events, their sell-out productions integrate athletic physicality, powerful narrative, incredible digital imagery and emotive sound scores.

Journey beyond the atmosphere

Inspired by the first moon landing, Gravity combines hand-to-hand acrobatics with Motionhouse’s signature contact choreography. Using breath-taking balances and extraordinary trust, Gravity sees two white-clad performers in an evocative exploration of weightlessness and zero gravity. An overwhelming sense of isolation underlies the precise, haunting choreography.

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

Our performance group at Stagecoach Liphook are an amalgamation of pupils from all three of our Main Stages schools.

This close knit group have developed a strong friendship and trust for one another allowing them to work well together to produce high calibre material. They are also an integral part of planning the pieces that they work on and are involved in the creative decisions made, which in turn gives them a greater sense of responsibility. We are extremely proud of the group and look forward to performing at Haslemere Fringe Festival.
