Canadian-born Matthias Sperlings choreography in Soft Power Generator explores how movement and the body can generate power and knowledge.
Completing the programme, is Uk-based James Cousins’ A Fable of Our Time, which considers current political climates in the world.
his is the Yorkshire based company’s first tour under new artistic director Matthew Robinson (previously Scottish Dance Theatre).
Matthew said: “We are excited to be hitting the road and sharing the work of these four internationally renowned choreographers with audiences across the UK and beyond. The dancers have worked with passion and determination with the choreographers to produce a performance that will surprise and enthral, showcasing their versatility and power”.
