Special Offer for schools: Phoenix Dance at the Victoria Theatre, Halifax

On 22 October Phoenix Dance Theatre is presenting its Mixed Programme 2014 with a free after-show Q&A. This is a great opportunity for Dance and Performing Arts students to see one of the UK's leading contemporary dance companies. Student tickets are only £7.50.

This autumn the Victoria Theatre is thrilled to be hosting one of the country’s most acclaimed contemporary dance companies – Phoenix Dance Theatre, who will present their scintillating 2014 Mixed Programme on 22 October. With a free after-show Q & A from the company, this would be a great educational opportunity for your students, which is why we’re offering the special price of just £7.50 per student ticket.

As well as presenting two world premieres, the programme features a fresh chance to experience a company classic. The evening is essential viewing for lovers of dance, sizzling physical theatrics or quite simply a jaw dropping night of entertainment.

The triple bill includes Document by the exciting European choreographic duo Ivgi &Greben. Powerful and brooding, the piece takes five dancers through a relentless and hard-hitting struggle with the darkest of human emotions. Didy Veldman’s See Blue Through plunges the stage into a fascinating, mysterious undersea world. Featuring sensuous, elastic choreography and costumes and an atmospheric Alfred Schnittke score, this audience favourite was first performed by the company in 2005. Darshan Buller’s Mapping encapsulates the innovative and dynamic choreography. Inspired by his father’s journey from East to West, the former Phoenix Artistic Director looks down on the world from above, resulting in a thrillingly inventive new performance.
