Swiss dancer brings mesmerising solo show to Shakespeare North

A Swiss artist whose career in dance has brought her to Liverpool via Mexico will perform a powerful one-woman show at Shakespeare North Playhouse in Prescot this summer.

In Bloom by Aline Costa, which runs from 18th to 20th July at Shakespeare North, promises to be a “mesmerising dance performance with powerful imagery and unexpected twists taking you on an unforgettable journey into the unknown.”

Costa, a performer and choreographer born in Switzerland, trained  in Mexico at Univerdanza Dance Company, and has been based in Huyton and Liverpool since 2016. Her latest show brings a unique vision to the stage, captivating audiences with her artistry, skill and elegant eccentricity.

Aline holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Stage Dance from the Institute of Fine Arts at Colima University, Mexico, where she worked as a dancer and creator for Univerdanza Dance Company.

Since moving to Liverpool, her career has seen her produce, choreograph and perform across the North West, as well as working on a variety of short films.

Most recently, she was offered a Physical Fest Female Bursaries to create a new solo piece and presented it at the festival last summer at the Unity Theatre in Liverpool to great acclaim.

Drawing inspiration from a variety of dance and physical theatre techniques and styles, “In Bloom” features evocative imagery, compelling narratives and dark humour, guiding the audience through a world of unreality, filled with thought-provoking moments and unpredictable twists and turns, ultimately delivering an experience that is actively engaging and imaginatively bizarre.

Speaking during rehearsals for the show, Costa said: 

“The audience can expect something deliciously unpredictable; a surreal world inhibited by a strange character that keeps everyone, including me, on their toes – I absolutely love that feeling!

She continued:

“As the show begins, the audience will meet a mysterious, ethereal figure taking the stage; slowly captivating them as she weaves her way through the random threads of her mind, all the while maintaining a capricious dark sense of humour.

In Bloom also features original music by celebrated Liverpool avant-garde quartet, Ex-Easter Island Head.

In Bloom will be performed at Shakespeare North in Prescot from 18th July to 20th July 2024. Tickets start at just £5 and are available from the venue’s website.
