Digital Programme 2022

November - December 2022

We are delighted to launch our second Digital Programme. 

The first Phoenix Digital Programme was born out a vital need to keep dancing, creating and entertaining our audiences whilst theatres were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Contextually, the world was going through a major shift and shake-up during 2020 which gave birth to the Black Lives Matter movement in the aftermath of the murder of George Floyd. As a dance company this gave rise to the need to elevate, and bring focus to, the stories and lives of Black men today. This resulted in us commissioning three films by three Black male choreographers: Carlos J. Martinez, Miguel Altunaga and Kennedy Junior Muntanga. (Watch the 2021 programme). 

This was a poignant gesture to, and reminder of, the remarkable origins of Phoenix and how it was founded by three young Black teenagers in 1981: David Hamilton, Vilmore James and Donald Edwards.  

The success of our first film programme warranted another commission – this time with the focus on highlighting and celebrating the lives of Black women today. Kristina and Sadé Alleyne, Sarah Golding and Alethia Antonia are standout artists and choreographers working in the industry today, and we are proud to be presenting their choreographic films as part of this Digital Programme.
