In her latest mixed bill, Artistic Director Cassa Pancho has once more commissioned bold choreography blending classical with contemporary and narrative with abstract dance.
by Martin Lawrance
A four-hander characterised by intricate detail and propulsive energy, Captured ebbs and flows to the fiery emotion of Martin Lawrance’s edgy choreography, set to a Shostakovich string quartet.
First premiered in 2012, Captured was an instant audience and critical success, ”…a highly dynamic work, set to the dense and threatening strings of Stostakovich.” (Telegraph)

Celebrated British choreographer Michael Corder, whose glittering versions of Cinderella and The Snow Queen have been seen across Europe, creates the evening’s second abstract piece, House of Dreams.
