Overview

Phoenix Dance Theatre are delighted to launch an exciting birthday programme to celebrate their milestone 40th birthday, bringing together an eclectic range of work from across the company’s illustrious history.

Pave Up Paradise

Lost Dog’s dynamic, sensual and confrontational duet revisits Adam and Eve after their fall from grace.

Heart of Chaos

Choreographed by former Artistic Director Darshan Singh Bhuller, this work captures the spirit of this colossal figure who challenged the segregated sport and white America in the era of Jim Crow and the Jazz Age.

Signal

Henri Oguike’s unflinching and powerful piece embraces both the frenzy of the battlefield and the calm at the centre of the storm.

Family

Choreographed by Shapiro and Smith, this satirical fly on the wall dance, elegantly captures the complexity of human interaction and ordinary passions that define family life

Harmonic Breakdown

In Jane Dudley’s masterpiece, a lone female dancer creates a poetic representation of an individual’s struggle to gain self-respect and dignity in a cruel, volatile world.

Featuring an eclectic selection of work by internationally acclaimed, award winning choreographers, including former Artistic Directors and collaborators, this celebratory evening of reflection promises to be a rich, unforgettable experience.

Content warning: This performance contains some sexual content and themes of racism and discrimination.
