An impact crater on a distant planet: the scene of ancient hostilities. This is the eerie setting for a manga-influenced, comic strip drama where battle is stylised, almost ritualistic. And yet there is love.

Since earliest times, March (Marzo) has been the month of war as the winter fades and spring signals a return to the fray. Protagonists enter the apocalyptic field, twitching and spinning as if in fast-forward mode. There’s a samurai warrior, alien challengers, spirits from the past and something more menacing.

Straddling physical theatre and contemporary dance, in a wholly original performance style, the uncanny choreography complemented by a discordant, electronic soundtrack and minimal narrative.

“Bonkers... A deafening soundscape of howling, bone-shaking intensity... Carefully crafted nightmare.”

Dominic Cavendish (The Telegraph)

“Dreamily surreal... Castellucci’s choreography has a simplistic, counter-gravitational quality... Crunching electronic score.”
