La Loca brings to life the story of Joanna the “Mad”, a sixteenth century queen of Spain, who was forcibly confined for the last fifty years of her life. On the day of her death, the phantoms in her mind lead her through her fractured memories, taking on the roles of her family and loved ones, to look back on her life and reign.

Red Winter is sensual, brutal and visceral re-imagining of the Little Red Riding Hood fable told entirely through movement and music. Set in a savage world, Red is recast as the master of her own destiny pushing the story into uncharted territory.
