The Riley Theatre
The Riley Theatre hosts a year-round programme of contemporary dance performances. The programme offers audiences the opportunity to see performances by professional visiting companies as well as NSCD student showcases and community platforms.
Our 2014 Spring/Summer season is so busy that we’ve had to split it in two! See the list above for performances January-March, and we’ll add April-July performances in the Spring, one highlight of which will be ACE dance and music, Friday 25 April.
We start 2014 by presenting Verve, NSCD’s postgraduate performance company, who open their four-month national and international tour at their home venue.This year’s programme includes Ocean, choreographed by NSCD student Jamaal Burkmar. Jamaal originally created Ocean on NSCD students whilst in his second year. A passionate and musical piece, that was incredibly well received, we’re thrilled to have the opportunity to present it to a wider audience.
In partnership with Yorkshire Dance, NSCD is committed to bringing some of the world’s best experimental movement-based work to Leeds. With this in mind, we are delighted to support Juncture 2014 by welcoming Nicole Beutler to The Riley in March. Also in March, the NSCD Student Showcase and Community Dance Platform represent the diverse range of work created by students and the community right here in Leeds.
We hope to see you soon at The Riley Theatre.
