Vincent Dance Theatre

Let the mountains lead you to love

Set in a white landscape, strewn with autumn leaves and 12 tall trees, Let The Mountains Lead You to Love is a rich and playful look at love in its various forms, full of vitality, innocence and a healthy dose of cynicism. Releasing six extraordinary performers from the restrictions of the city to indulge in the confusions of their sexuality, the puzzles of attraction and the joys of fake folk-dancing, Let The Mountains Lead You to Love brings together performers from Austria, Poland and the UK. Funny, touching and achingly honest Let The Mountains Lead You to Love reveals the unspoken dreams, daring aspirations and deep regrets of everyone involved.

'We make a dwelling in the evening air,
In which being there together is enough'
(Wallace Stevens)
