When to see it

Background

Leeds-based Phoenix Dance Theatre is one of Britain's leading contemporary dance companies. They return to the Linbury Studio Theatre with a rich mixed programme of new and recent works created for the company.

The programme opens with Mapping, created by Phoenix Dance Theatre's former director Darshan Singh Bhuller. Bhuller was inspired by his father's journey from India to the UK to create a dynamic and inventive work in which the world seems to unfold beneath us. The rest of the programme includes a world premiere from Christopher Bruce, former director of Rambert, and Document, the excoriating UK debut from Ivgi & Greben. Five dancers struggle against the darkest forces of human emotion in movement of startling intensity, to music by the choreographers' regular collaborator Tom Parkinson.
