Wired Aerial Theatre Commission Sharon Watson

9 May 2016


Phoenix Dance Theatre is thrilled to announce, Sharon Watson has been commissioned to create a new work for acclaimed Wired Aerial Theatre touring across the UK this summer!

SLICE is a seamless synergy of sublime contemporary dance and gravity-defying aerial technique. Featuring a cast of four dancers the piece explores identity and our territorial impulses through a series of quartets, duets and solos. Soaring and swooping through the air, SLICE explores the open the space between heaven and hell, between power and sensitivity and propelling the art form into uncharted territory.

This piece will be performed as part of a double bill alongside the Company’s latest piece Straw Dog.

SLICE will premiere at Greenwich+Docklands International Festival as part of Dancing City at Canary Wharf on Saturday 2 July and will be available for touring to outdoor festivals in the UK and internationally from July onwards.
