This bold company of 12 dancers head out on their first tour with new works created especially for them by Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sharon Watson and company Artistic Director Joss Arnott.
Taking the idea of empowerment as a starting point, both choreographers have created pieces that play to the incredible strengths of the dancers.
Sharon’s And still I walk…, takes inspiration from women’s suffrage and the struggles that we as humans still face today. Joss Arnott's When Worlds Collide is an exhilarating, technical masterclass which features an original, cinematic music score and an elaborate lighting design.
Emergence is the brand-new postgraduate dance company of award-winning Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford.
