Trailer: Here be dragons - Non plus ultra

Here be dragons / Non plus ultra premiered January 2013

Choreographer: Henry Daniel

Here be dragons / Non plus ultra is a new work by choreographer Henry Daniel with Musical Director / Composer Owen Underhill featuring dancers, musicians, and media artists from Barcelona, Spain, and Vancouver, Canada.

The work deliberately uses the city of Barcelona as a vehicle, a barca, for new cross-Atlantic voyages of discovery and understanding, connecting to Vancouver, Canada, at the edge of the Pacific. Using the historic events of 1492 as a reference point it explores the concept of going west to find east, and by default going east to find west.
