DANCE: EVENT OF THE WEEK: Salome Tue to 2 May St Pancras Chambers, London NW1

In the cellars under St Pancras Chambers (the great former hotel outside St Pancras Station on the Euston Road, above), the Seven Sisters Group invite us to enter and explore mysterious dark rooms and passageways looking for Salome. They promise ambiguous and unexpected seduction through light, sound and movement devised by choreographer Susanne Thomas and composer Phil Durrant, with mirrors as part of the design and video projections to contribute to their mystery. There are up to four sessions a day but each can accept only 25 spectators, and demand is so heavy that extra performances have been added. Advance booking is essential, from the Place Theatre which commissioned the piece for its Spring Loaded season.

Seven Sisters Group, St Pancras Chambers, London NW1 (0171-387 0031) Tue 6.45pm & 8pm, Wed to 2 May at 3pm, 4.15pm, 6.45pm & 8pm.
