The performance lasts approximately 45 minutes, with no interval.

DeNada Dance Theatre | TORO - Beauty and the Bull

Nominated for Best Independent Company at the National Dance Awards 2016, DeNada Dance Theatre have raged onto the UK dance scene with their unique and innovative narrative productions infused with dark humour and sensuality.

This April they perform Carlos Pons Guerra’s 
TORO, a gender-questioning, Hispanic take on the fairytale Beauty and the Beast, boldly dealing with the eroticism of the story.

Set in a dystopian South America, in a heady world of conquistadors, female bulls, virgin lands and animals in drag, 
TORO is a darkly comic and melodramatic tragedy about the monsters men create through power, fear and oppression.

Age recommendation: 14+ due to scenes of a strong sexual nature and partial nudity.

Motionhouse | Charge

Inspired by the incredible role of electricity in the human body, Charge is a new dance-circus show from acclaimed company Motionhouse.

From the electrical charge that sparks human life, to the beating of our hearts and the memories we make, six performers use dance and acrobatics to delve deep into the human body.

In this exhilarating multi-media production, digital projections create a magical world on stage where dancers and images interact seamlessly, tracing the story of energy in our own lives.

An electrifying fusion of art and science, 
Charge is the third element of Kevin Finnan’s Earth Trilogy, developing on themes explored in Scattered (2009) and Broken (2013) about our relationship with water and the Earth.

Richard Chappell Dance | At the end we begin

Richard Chappell Dance presents a dynamic and compelling programme inspired by T.S. Eliot's classic poetry series Four Quartets, with four arresting and emotionally fuelled dance quartets.

Questioning the effect of time's circular nature, 
At the end we begin takes four individuals from a place of being lost to a state of empowerment and acceptance, where they have found their own voice by journeying through Eliot's text.

With Chappell's blend of classical ballet, martial arts, improvisation and contact work, this production highlights each performer's unique and diverse skills, such as Vogueing and Breaking.

Accompanied by a freshly composed score of cello, piano and electronics, 
At the end we begin is Richard Chappell Dance's most thrilling and collaborative work to date.
