Phoenix at Home: A Celebration of Female Choreography
27 – 30 September 2017 at The Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre in Leeds.

The acclaimed Phoenix Dance Theatre, led by Artistic Director and Yorkshire Woman of the Year, Sharon Watson, are back for their seventh annual home performance to champion the exceptional female talent within the company. Expect to see a vibrant showcase of dance celebrating the work of all female choreographers.

Highlights include: a last chance to see Calyx, a first commission for company dancer Sandrine Monin, and a never before seen excerpt from the research and development of Windrush, a major new piece by Sharon Watson herself; Windrush will premiere in 2018 to celebrate the 70th anniversary of the arrival of SS Windrush that brought the first wave of Caribbean migrants to Britain. Paired with edgy, playful solos and guest performances from the rising stars at Phoenix Academy, Phoenix Dance Theatre promise a thrilling evening of dance.
