Friday 11th February 7pm / Main House


The Monocle, a newly created piece by Rendez-Vous dance is inspired by the secretly notorious 1930s Parisian lesbian club Le Monocle. The Monocle will be performed by six outstanding dancers. Conceived as a fun night out, The Monocle will re-shape traditional theatre settings into a club where audiences can participate in a highly virtuosic evening mixing dance and live music.

Be our guest at The Monocle! In here the air is thick, warm and wavy with secrets and sensuality. Women laugh loudly, drink the night away and dance in each other’s arms.
