Joss Arnott Dance Double Bill

Dramatic, fierce and totally rock and roll. Be mesmerised by a cast of alpha females. Choreographed to perfection, they move in slick unison, with insect-like isolation, taking inspiration from classical ballet, commercial dance, pop culture, fashion and film and performed to live music. Record Of Events We dare you to explore a darker side to femininity, with this hypnotising dance that combines Joss’ trademark athletic choreography with theatrical flair. Be catapulted into a chaotic world of sensuality, discovery and hopelessness. What is the whole-truth? Who are we to judge anyway? Threshold With impressive strength and power, dancers invade each others’ territory in this highly-charged exploration of the human body. Follow vigorous dashes across the stage and a rapid relay of connections and disconnections, as performers contort themselves through hyper-mobility, switching from robotic aggression to controlled extensions. Tickets: £15.50 (discounts: £13.50), Out:smart/Schools: £9.50

Tickets: £13 (discounts: £10), schools/Out:smart: £8.50* Kathak dance workshops with the company are available. For more information contact Shehnoor@googlemailcom or phone 07979 816311

The Urban Playground Run This Town

Who runs this town? The highest office gives the best view of all but it’s a long way from the street and the quickest way is to fall… A group of hi-rise city workers climb the career ladder, slide on the slippery slope of success, engage in an office romance and fight to make a killing before they get the push. The Urban Playground Team is the original and premiere Performance – Parkour company bringing together urban and contemporary dance theatre with authentic French parkour, the unique electronica of Chris Umney and the stunning cinematography of Sacha Powell. Their work includes performing in theatres and on the streets, in moving buses and trains, on the roofs of buildings, the top of vans and countless scaffold towers. Their work has been seen throughout the world. Tickets: £8.50
