Following the success of 2012's Crossing Points, Phoenix Dance
Theatre returns to the Playhouse with a performance that is alive
with music and sound.
Performed to a specially commissioned score, Phoenix Artistic Director Sharon Watson's latest work sees dancers blending movement and music from on stage musicians to create a unique, abstract piece of theatre. Specialising in explosive, powerful dance, Douglas Thorpe's newest piece for the company is a blistering duet that features his trademark raw, visceral choreography.
One of the country's most exciting emerging talents, Jose Agudo's unforgettable new solo sees a single dancer fill the stage with physical, intense dance.Completing the bill is celebrated choreographer Richard Alston's first work for Phoenix; a poignant piece that takes its inspiration from Ravel's Sonata for Violin and Cello.
