Phoenix at Home is an annual production by internationally-renowned, Leeds-based contemporary dance company Phoenix Dance Theatre. Utilising its own dancers, choreographers and Youth Academy it is a celebratory showcase of the company’s work.
Last year Phoenix celebrated female choreographers which included Calyx by multi-award-winning company dancer Sandrine Monin and a preview of Windrush: Movement of the People by Artistic Director Sharon Watson.
This year Phoenix will present Robert North’s world-renowned Troy Game. Described by the New York Times as a ‘funny and sexy romp’, Troy Game is a tongue in cheek parody of male machismo and is re-staged to include female dancers.
Sandrine Monin makes a welcome return with an excerpt from her new piece Kirke for which she has again teamed up with Italian composer Roberto Rusconi, and Phoenix Youth Academy take to the stage with colourful and comedic new work Spam choreographed by company dancer Michael Marquez.
Phoenix at Home is at Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre from Thursday 18th to Saturday 20th October 2018 at 7.30pm with a 2pm matinee on Saturday. To book call box office 0113 220 8008
