Desolation reflects this intensely claustrophobic feeling of being trapped and the desire to break out and escape. Jumping between the vast open fields and wide spaces of outdoors, to the four claustrophobic walls of the home, Sam Salter (Matthew Bourne’s SWAN LAKE) transitions between these two opposing worlds in a never-ending loop. It’s through dance that he’s able to escape from one world to another.
