Shakespeare’s timeless themes of desire, duplicity and unrequited love are brought to life in Kate Flatt’s Undivided Loves. Fusing sound, words and dance, Shakespeare’s most intimate, mysterious and radical sonnets are reimagined to Adriano Adewale’s vibrant and percussive score.
In contrast, Dutch/Israeli choreographer Itzik Galili reworks his piece, Until.With/Out.Enough, which explores the concept of the enclosed space that exists within our minds.
Finally, the quirky and playful Bloom by award-winning choreographer Caroline Finn explores the darkly comic expressions of life and humanity.
‘the Leeds-based company can pride itself on being one of Britain’s most enduring dance institutions […] it’s never lost sight of its underlying brand – mixing the popular mainstream with the unexpected and unpredictable.’ – The Guardian, on Phoenix Dance Theatre
Until.With/Out.Enough is a co-commission between The Royal Ballet and Phoenix Dance Theatre. Undivided Loves is co-commissioned with Watford Palace Theatre. Phoenix Dance Theatre gratefully acknowledges support from PRS for Music Foundation. Bloom is commissioned in partnership with the New Adventures Choreographer Award.
