Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Triple Bill 2016 will showcase three engaging works in celebration of their 35th anniversary.
Company dancer Sandrine Monin commented:
‘It’s a privilege to be part of the company as it is celebrating 35 years of history. It feels like being part of a legacy and has such a rich history. It’s great to know that you become part of it and contribute to perpetuate it.’
Co-commissioned with the Royal Ballet, Dutch/Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili reworks his piece Until.With/Out.Enough, an emotional abstract journey filled with intimacy, athletic power and tension.
To follow is Undivided Loves by Kate Flatt, co-commissioned with Watford Palace Theatre. A fusion of sound, words and dance, Shakespeare’s most intimate, mysterious and radical sonnets are reimagined to Adriano Adewale’s vibrant and percussive score.
Finally, the quirky and playful Bloom by award-winning choreographer Caroline Finn explores the darkly comic expressions of life and humanity.
‘The Leeds-based company can pride itself on being one of Britain’s most enduring dance institutions […] it’s never lost sight of its underlying brand – mixing the popular mainstream with the unexpected and unpredictable.’ – The Guardian, on Phoenix Dance Theatre
Phoenix Dance Theatre will perform at the Laban Theatre on Fri 18 & Sat 19 November 7pm. For more information and to book tickets visit our events page.
