Liv Lorents sensuous choreography embraces the exceptional grace and strength of seven dancers as they balance on their own revolving turntables. Beginning dressed in full-length garments that accentuate and distort the stature and elegance of their bodies, the dancers are transformed as layers of clothing slip away. A kaleidoscopic journey from couture design into nude sculptural form a completely different kind of designer body.

Preview of balletLORENT's fairytale fantasy for all ages - Angelmoth.
Angelmoth follows the bittersweet tale of librarian Pippanouska, and the dispossessed characters that frequent the library as a haven away from the real world. When a stranger arrives one day, he paves their way for a life-changing encounter with the Angelmoth - an ethereal butterfly-like creature with the capacity to make people fly and realise their dreams. But when two of the group suddenly disappear completely into the Angelmoth's world, their friends begin the adventurous journey of trying to find them and bring them home.
Choreographed by Liv Lorent. Written and Narrated by Ben Crompton. Music by Andy Ross. Costumes by Paul Shriek. Lighting by Malcolm Rippeth. Set by Phil Eddols.
