Hummadruz, The Black Light Theatre of Wales presents the Ultimate Psychedelic Trip: Gustav Holst's "The Planets".
Hummadruz looks to the heavens and presents a multi-coloured voyage through the Cosmos in a Space Fantasia.
Gustav Holst’s astrological take on The Planets has inspired seven stories that will transport you to an Underwater Kingdom, the Elastic Rainbow Planet, the Dawn of Time and the outer reaches of our Solar System.
Hummadruz are The Black Light Theatre of Wales and we use our unique style of performance to animate the musical score: Ultra-Violet Circus, Dance, Puppetry and Illusion.
The company, who have previously taken on pieces from the likes of Rick Wakeman, Led Zeppelin and Eat Static ar...e bringing life to the classical suite based on the astrological forces of the planets above. The show toured nationally throughout Wales in 2014 but has now been radically reworked to be staged at the Wales Millennium Centre.
Hummadruz will make you smile, gasp and cry at their interpretations of each of Holst’s original themes, from Mars’ The Bringer of War to Jupiter the Bringer of Jollity.
“Make sure you make time to go see this incredible combination of classical and modern performance.” Buzz Magazine 2014.
