A new dance performance, inspired by Wes Anderson and The Twilight Zone is to be showcased at the Marine Hall, Fleetwood, on Friday.

bgroup and China Plate present Point of Echoes, a specially commissioned rural touring dance initiative, for one night only.

The piece, at 7.30pm, is set in a lighthouse, known as Echo Point, situated off the coast of England back in 1978. It tells the story of two keepers, Eric Valentine and Bernard Humphries.

A spokesman said: “Isolated from the mainland, the pair strive to form a good working relationship, but find themselves dealing with a series of uncanny events.

“Anyone with an interest in dance, film, and the unexplained will find this show a captivating night out.
