Our Student Ambassadors reviewed Phoenix Dance Company’s Crossing Points last week. It was a rare opportunity for them to see contemporary dance (and one of the best companies in the UK as well). Here’s what they had to say:
Works by Aletta Collins, Kwesi Johnson, Henri Oguike and Ana Luján Sánchez.
Following the success of Reflected earlier this year, Phoenix Dance Theatre return to York with Crossing Points, the company’s latest publically acclaimed mixed programme.
The bill features four contrasting dance works. Inspired by Magritte’s iconic painting The Son of Man, Ana Luján Sánchez’s Catch immerses the audience in a surreal world filled with dynamic and thought provoking choreography whilst SoundClash by Kwesi Johnson sees the dancers mimic the complex and beautiful patterns created by sound waves when made visible.
Crossing Points also features Henri Oguike’s unflinching, thrilling Signal, and another chance to see Aletta Collins’ sassy, hilarious modern Phoenix classic Maybe Yes Maybe, Maybe No Maybe.
