Cages is the indescribable “genre-busting game changer” (LA Times) that leaves audiences in awe!

This stunningly realised and utterly unique live experience presents a mind-bending, technologically innovative visual spectacle, the like of which is rarely seen in live theatre.

An intimate and mysterious gothic romance beckons, serving up a tale of shared humanity and rebellious passion. Masterfully weaving state-of-the-art video and animation with live performance and original songs that pulse with an addictive pop energy, Cages pulls out all the stops to conjure a rock opera musical for the modern age.

Cages touches upon all of the senses during a unique two-hour performance that will alter your perception of what’s possible on a theatrical stage through ground-breaking technology, an all-consuming sphere of sound, and state-of-the-art visuals.

Don’t miss the London debut and strictly limited run at Riverside Studios.

Reviews of Cages

“All grounded in beautiful music and a glorious story. A story of heart. A story of shared humanity. A story for our times right now.” - Forbes
“The songs have a pulsating bass, infectious hooks and a sumptuous serving of auto-tune… These earworms echo the aural aesthetics of Muse, Daft Punk, Ellie Goulding, Sufjan Stevens and Kanye West — if they were accompanied by a 50-piece orchestra.” - LA Times
