“I’ve seen numerous companies perform over the years but Lamondance astounds me more than any of them.There’s nothing contrived about this company of brilliant movers. Everything they do comes across as real and intended. Their movement is steeped in emotion and has the power to transport the mindset of the audience to an otherworldly realm.” - Gill Civil  


A timeless journey into the heart of duels, enchantment, vengeance and passion. Original music and story by the Emmy-nominated music composer Hal Beckett and choreography by Artistic Director Davi Rodrigues.
