Wednesday 29th April 2020
Riley Theatre

A triple bill of brand new works by renowned choreographers Kristina and Sadé Alleyne (Alleyne Dance), Riccardo Buscarini and Igor Urzelai and Moreno Solinas (Igor X Moreno). With each piece comes a new point of exploration: how movement can create emotion or characters; how dance interacts with different art forms; how using the body can reveal meaning, ideas and desires.

Expect physicality, poetry, rigour and beauty as 14 dancers from across the globe (including the USA, Norway, Slovenia, Israel, Canada, Poland and the UK) invest power and passion into each work.

EDGE is the internationally touring postgraduate company of London Contemporary Dance School.
