The Devil’s Mischief
He gets the girl, he gets the money, he gets all the best tunes and he’s probably a damn good dancer.

Devised by Neil Paris with performers Sarah Lewis and Carly Best, this imaginatively choreographed piece, inspired by Ed Marquand’s book, explores the ambiguous, co-dependent relationship between humanity and the devil.
