Synopsis

After last year’s five-star sell-out contemporary dance opera, Sweat Factory, YMT returns with a site-specific, immersive experience from Northern Irish composer Conor Mitchell and independent dance artist Rachel Birch-Lawson, which will be showcased at the CLF Art Cafe, Peckham!

A hard-hitting exploration of war, duty and patriotism, The Dark Tower is a unique musical-dance performance telling the story of a soldier's quest to fulfil his destiny. Follow our journey over three levels of the Bussey Building in this moving piece inspired by Robert Browning's poem Childe Roland to the Dark Tower Came.
