Founded in 2002, Warwickshire-based Mobius Dance Theatre delivers high octane theatrical works with a quirky edge.

Their show 'Such Is Life' brings together five brilliant performers from some of the finest dance groups in the UK including Frantic Assembly, Punch Drunk, De la Guarda, Motionhouse Dance Theatre, Barebones and Wired Aerial Theatre.

This week's performance weaves together three related pieces that explore life, love and art by five characters set against three different situations and utilising an imaginative use of the set and the props.

'The Root of It' (trio) explores the pleasure and pain of living with the influence of the past; 'Pressure Gauge' (duet) examines the struggle to strike a balance between life and a relationship and 'Performing Monkey' (quintet) addresses the pressure to perform, succeed and be the best in everything we do.

Mobius are described by one arts magazine as having 'a pedigree to die for', so make sure you don't miss this chance to check out their fancy footwork for yourself.

Tickets are available priced 10 and 6 concessions (stalls), 12 (circle), 15 box and 25 (family ticket).
