Take the plunge, the water’s lovely, taste the wine and the salty bubbly…

On a storm filled night when clouds were the colour of bad tempers, the briny sea separated Neptune from his son Neleus. But it’s been years… and today, something has washed up on the beach that is neither fish nor bird nor boat. It’s the morning of The Neptunalia Ball, but what or who has arrived? Grab your walking boots as dancing shoes and join us for a maritime feast like no other!

Told through dance, story and installation, this is an odyssey of growing up and returning home. Of prodigal sons and daughters, tattoo parlours, journeys and mysteries. Through wit, warmth, beauty and dancing, Cornwall’s leading dance company will take us all on a journey in which we’ll recognise a Neptune, a mother, and a child. A delight for all the family!

Neptunalia is premiering at Trebah Gardens, as part of the Salt 2016 Landscape Dance Festival from July 26th – August 11th 2016. Make sure to bring your walking boots and to dress for the weather (and bring a torch for the late shows!) as this is an immersive promenade experience touring around the stunning grounds of Trebah, leading to the Grand Neptunalia Ball on the beach with paella to boot… Book your ‘show & supper’ tickets at http://www.crbo.co.uk/salt2016 for the following dates:
