Joss Arnott Dance presents

Triple Bill

Joss Arnott Dance’s new classical contemporary programme will take you on a gripping journey through powerful and heart-pounding choreography that has established the company as one of the most exciting voices in British contemporary dance.

Created in collaboration with some of the industry’s foremost, award-winning dancers, composers and designers, Arnott’s new Triple Bill consists of two brand new dance works 5 – A Movement in 3 and RUSH – alongside the company’s internationally award-winning solo V that will feature live music for the first time.

Expect a highly charged, visually stunning and musically led evening of dance that explodes with power and technical brilliance.

There will be a post show discussion.

New to 2018: as a part of Lift Off Dance Festival, South Hill Park is offering a limited number of tickets as our DANCEPASSPORT offer. This applies to 1 cinema screening and 2 professional performances at only £40, giving you a saving of £11. This deal is available in person, via telephone and online, so be sure to get your tickets booked by quoting the code DANCEPASSPORT before the tickets run out! The performances included in this offer are marked on the Lift Off Dance Festival website page.

Set to a harmonious, original score for piano and strings by composer Quinta, Arnott’s signature, bold choreographic stylistic is contrasted with an edgy, yet effortless, fluid complexity. Exploring light and shadow, this collision of melody and dance creates a mysterious and dreamlike atmosphere enhanced by Yaron Abulafia’s visually exquisite lighting design.

V reveals the contrasting qualities of an extraordinary dancer ranging from radical and hyper-mobile movement to sensual and graceful subtlety.

Exploring a rare and agile beauty of movement through technical precision, this emotive work reveals an outstanding interplay between dance and live music for solo viola, composed by James Keane, through a stunning, serene landscape of ever-changing asymmetric lighting by Fabiana Piccioli.

A tour de force of athletic virtuosity, RUSH captures the modern and athletic sense of power of this alpha female cast through percussive, adrenaline fuelled and infectiously gripping choreography.

A technical masterclass in performance, this full company work shows how movement can speak volumes, create multiple dialogues and provide exhilarating sensory experiences to excite and inspire audiences of all ages.

Please note this show includes periods of intense light and loud music throughout this piece.
