Phoenix Dance Theatre is delighted to be showing a revival of the much loved Shadows by Christopher Bruce, as part of their Mixed Programme 2018 alongside Calyx and Windrush.

The work was described by The Times as “emotive, traumatic and weighted with memory — or is it fear?”

In this moving and thoughtful piece of dance theatre, the renowned choreographer, Christopher Bruce, investigates human experience and suffering.  Set in the mid-twentieth century and taking the family dynamic as its central theme, Shadows explores some of the deepest fears and daily struggles faced by people all over the world.

Shadows is part of the GCSE Dance Anthology of professional set works.
