Quays Culture is an organisation that promotes outdoor arts events in Salford, and they have a special, one-night-only event organised for June. Entitled Charge, it is a ‘dance circus’ which will be staged on the piazza at MediaCity. This free, 70-minute production sees six performers use dance and acrobatics to represent the workings of the human body. Aided by digital projections, they will show the importance of electricity in living beings. The show was created by Motionhouse, an acclaimed production company with a long history of creating dance-based theatre shows. For this project, the company worked with partners at Oxford University to create a fusion of art and science. Charge has been performed at venues throughout the UK and Europe to good reviews, and it is recreated as an outdoor show exclusively for this event.
