Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Triple Bill 2016 showcases three engaging works in celebration of their 35th anniversary.
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, audience favourite Melt by Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director Sharon Watson sees the elements collide as dancers swoop and glide across the stage in a breathtaking mix of aerial dance.
Finally, the quirky and playful Bloom by award-winning choreographer Caroline Finn explores the darkly comic expressions of life and humanity.
