In this innovative and athletic programme of dance theatre, Verve presents four pieces shaped by leading international choreographers.
James Wilton, winner of the Sadler’s Wells Global Dance Contest 2010, presents a thrilling, physically-charged work, utilising his popular blend of dance with martial arts and capoeira. Jerwood Award-winning choreographer Ben Wright combines dance with music and comedy to produce a series of heart-warming episodes. The programme is complemented by a quirky and technical work by Frauke Requardt, Work Place Artist and Associate Artist at Greenwich Dance. Completing the evening is a fresh and direct piece of dance theatre by Angus Balbernie.
With 12 dancers fresh from intensive technical training at some of the world’s leading conservatoires, Verve is well known for passionate, dynamic and invigorating performances.
