London International Mime Festival - Familie Flöz - Feste
A dancer wearing a full-face mask - a young woman in a high-necked, white evening gown – looks up towards a glitterball. Squares of mirror flake away from the glitterball and fall down on her, while her feet are hidden by a heap of bin bags crammed with rubbish.

Dada Masilo's The Sacrifice
Five Black women stand facing us, leaning forwards as their hands join to clap. The woman closest to us (Dada Masilo) has her head thrown back, mouth open in a joyful smile. They wear soft green sleeveless dresses, the hems dipped in black, with a glimpse of red underskirt. In the background, the silhouettes of trees are projected against a violet sky.

Seeta Patel Dance - Rite of Spring
Five dancers face us in a tight group, all with knees bent wide and arms extended to the sides, palms facing upwards, in a pose from the Indian classical dance form, bharatanatyam. Their faces are serious, the gaze lifted. They wear loose sleeveless tunics and trousers in lilacs, greens and pinks.

A group of five Black dancers wear colourful shirts and cardigans decorated with diamond patterns. Three crouch to drum on wooden boxes and watch as two men dance in the centre, raising their arms and lifting one knee to hop or stamp.

Nadiya and Kai - Once Upon a Time
A couple are stood side by side looking straight into the camera and smiling broadly. They are shown from the shoulders up. On the left is Nadiya. She wears a sequined rose gold halter neck gown, her face is made up with red lipstick, and her shoulder-length blonde hair is in neat waves. Kai, on the right, wears a white tuxedo with black bow tie and black pocket square. His hair is short and black, framing his face. Behind them is a wash of bright camera flashes as if they are being pictured on a red carpet.

Breakin' Convention 2023 - International Festival of Hip Hop Dance Theatre
A group of eight hip hop dancers encircle a ninth, cheering him on. His elbows are high, fingers pointing down, knees soft. They all wear variations on street style – white trainers, black hoodies, baseball caps, a bucket hat, a balaclava – against a background of orange smoke and blazing lights.

Russell Maliphant Dance Company - Vortex
A dancer is bent back backwards into a spiralling shape that echoes the spirals projected on the floor: knees bent almost to the floor, their torso is near horizontal; one arm extends towards the floor, the other is about to swing up. A light shower of dust or sand is descending onto them.

Northern Ballet - The Great Gatsby
A golden image of the gilded age – a young white man clad in pale gold trousers and waistcoat lightly throws into the air a smiling white woman wearing a frothy white dress, her golden curls backlit like a halo. They are surrounded by a cloud of tumbling glitter.
