Motionhouse bring their distinctive brand of high-octane dance and acrobatics back to the Peacock theatre this spring with a revival of their exhilarating 2009 classic Scattered. On a specially curved stage, seven dancers appear to swim amongst the waves, freeze into glaciers and much more as artful projections and dextrous choreography combine to create this intriguing exploration of mankind's relationship with that most wonderful thing. Water!

Out Of This World

May 1-3, 2017

Is it theatrical drama or contemporary dance? That is the question that has critics arguing over. The answer is; it's both! Using cutting-edge special effects, pin-sharp choreography and a gripping storyline, Out Of This World takes you far beyond the realms of consciousness through a thrilling medical and psychological chiller. Already a hit on the UK touring circuit, Mark Murphy's jaw-dropping production comes to The Peacock in 2017 and is set to light the stage on fire with its unique genre-busting action and nail-biting drama.


May 6-20, 2017

What do you conjure in your mind when you hear the word Soho? For Londoners and visitors it means different things to everyone who ventures down its winding streets. From the glamour of Annabel's nightclub, to the sleaze of the sex shops and the burlesque charm of Madame Jo-Jos, this new part-dance, part-circus show celebrates the area in all its transigent glory with shops, clubs and the street playing their parts as colourful backgrounds to the performers' energetic dance.


May 23-June 10, 2017

The Jakob Ahlbom Company returns to the Peacock Theatre with this chilling homage to the darkest genre, a thrilling combination of theatrical effects, illusions, mime and choreography. Drawing inspiration from films such as Carrie, The Omen, The Exorcist and more, settle down for a terrifying journey through fear and farce that'll make you think twice about turning off the light at bedtime.


September 12-October 14, 2017

Following its hugely successful UK tour in 2016, Footloose will be arriving in the West End next September for a limited period at the Peacock Theatre! With Gareth Gates and Maureen Nolan reprising their roles for this new engagement, the show is also set to go on international tour in addition to its London run! Based on the 1984 movie that catapaulted Kevin Bacon to stardom, the popular musical has already seen success in the States on tour, and features some of the Eighties' most iconic tunes including Holding Out For A Hero, Almost Paradise, and Let's Hear It For The Boy. It's time to let loose!
