Celebrating their fifth anniversary year, Emergence Dance bring a dynamic triple bill of dance to South Lakes as part of the 2023 Emergence touring programme.

Emergence Dance is a spectacular showcase and a highlight of the dance calendar.

Emergence are the supremely talented postgraduate performance company of Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford. Demonstrating remarkable skill, discipline and stamina, all of the performers in the company are currently completing an MA in dance. Every year, the company get the opportunity to work with guest choreographers to create brand-new dance pieces, and Emergence Dance is a spectacular showcase of the company’s work and a highlight of the dance calendar.

Featuring the latest talented cohort of dancers and three brand-new works, the vibrant company will unleash their energy, creativity and skilful precision at Brewery Arts Centre this April.

A dynamic triple bill of dance.

International choreographers Alice Klock and Florian Lochner of German/ American dance company FLOCK will bring a physically charged and distinctive piece. Taking a unique approach to physicality and storytelling, the piece is set to demonstrate the dancers’ technical skill and explore the idea of latent power within us all.

Anthony Missen, of Manchester-based Company Chameleon, will choreograph a new work that captures the raw physicality of the performers; a piece that illustrates their strength and virtuosity as dancers.

Artistic Director Joss Arnott completes this exciting evening of dance with a brand-new work featuring the full company of dancers. Set to an electrifying new percussion soundtrack by composer James Keane, the ensemble will explore the interplay between movement and music, individuality and states of euphoria.
