Approaching group rituals from two different angles, Phoenix Dance Theatre presents an energetic double-bill of reinventions

The Rite of Spring draws on the themes of ceremony and sacrifice in a captivating performance for today’s modern global society.

Alongside Rite of Spring will be a revival or Robert North’s much loved Troy Game, a tongue-in-cheek parody of male machismo. The work is a display of muscular humour, ritual and athleticism that has been specially re-staged for Phoenix to include female dancers.

"…an innovative blend of acting and movement that looks like the purest of pure dance pieces, as well as fashionable minimalist ritual."
