'An interesting amalgam of styles, from some excellent dancers.'
The Evening Standard
A rich and sensual dance theatre experience with live music and original score by Phillip O'Meara.
Based on Oscar Wilde's Salome, the company of six take you on an extraordinary and dark journey where music, contemporary dance and latin ballroom bring to life the characters and themes of Wilde’s tragedy.
The epic biblical story of Salome's adoration of the prophet John, imprisoned by her jealous and lacivious stepfather Herod and the terrible abjection that befalls all three. The dark story of the Tetriarch, the Prophet and the Tetriarch's stepdaughter.
EDIFICE is co-directed by choreographer- dancer duo Carmine De Amicis and Harriet Waghorn.
Together they have developed a hybrid language for choreography that combines the speed, passion and connection of ballroom, with the fluidity, freedom and connection of contemporary dance
Running Time 60 Mins
‘The show contains scenes of sexual and violent nature - not suitable for young children’

Edifice & Theatre Maker
Salome by Edifice dance with the Hastings philharmonic is a Cockpit Theatre Maker show. The Cockpit has supported Edifice for three years since they first came to us as part of camden fringe. Last year we helped produce Tenome which played at The Cockpit and at St Mary's in The Castle in Hastings. This year, Edifice received ACE funding for a touring treatment of Salome by Oscar Wilde.
Edifice are gaining a reputation for an evolving form of dance theatre with an emphasis on energy, graphic dance and passion. Dave Wybrow is working with them on Salome as dramaturge. Says Dave: "Carmine, Harriet and Fabio are almost superhuman dancers and this is a crazy abstracted treatment of the play. I am completely out of my comfort zone working with them - even without having to dance"
