Back by popular demand, award-winning choreographer Arthur Pita’s full length work, God’s Garden, based on the parable of The Prodigal Son, brings to life the intensity and drama of rustic village life through dance theatre, live fado music, design by Jean-Marc Puissant and a cast whose ages range from 23 to 84!
Set high on a hill looking over the sea lies the magnificent village of Porto Moniz, Madeira. The golden boy of the Costa family flees on his wedding day, jilting his faithful bride in order to sow his wild oats.
When the prodigal son returns home, all is forgiven… but though the jilted bride’s tears water a hungry garden, how will she take her revenge?
Pita’s previous commissions include The Metamorphosis, which won the South Bank Award for dance 2012 and an Olivier nomination for best new dance production, Snow White in Black, winning a National Dance Award for Modern Repertory and Mischief, which won the TMA Award for Achievement in Dance.
