VERVE presents four exhilarating new dance works by international choreographers, performed by a company of eleven dancers trained at some of the world’s most prestigious dance schools.
Carlos Pons Guerra’s wild Rita explores what happens when we suppress the vitality and desires of youth, set in a nunnery and featuring a soundtrack of Cuban percussion and Mexican Rancheras.
Using a combination of improvised and explosive set choreography, Leila McMillan’s work Continuum looks at how we find strength in each other, and ourselves, to destroy and rebuild.
Exploring a hypnotic choreographic task Matthias Sperling calls ‘looping’, the dancers in Soft Power Generator ask: Can movement and the body generate power and knowledge for us?
Finally, James Cousins’ highly physical, full company work A Fable of Our Time considers current political climates in the world that create and maintain stark divisions in society.
