Requiem (excerpts)
by Dane Hurst

loss /lɒs/ noun
the feeling of sadness you experience when someone or something you like is taken away from you

Former Phoenix Artistic Director Dane Hurst’s critically acclaimed Requiem is a powerful reimagining of Mozart’s awe-inspiring choral lament and an emotional response to the grief experienced by so many during the pandemic. This-5 star ‘stunning’ (The Times) production premiered at Leeds Grand Theatre as part of LEEDS 2023: Year of Culture.

(Please note that Requiem will be performed to recorded music).

Cloudburst (World Premiere)
by Miguel Altunaga

legacy /ˈleɡ.ə.si/ noun
something transmitted by or received from an ancestor or predecessor or from the past

Miguel Altunaga’s daring new work explores mankind’s relationship to tribe and community, mythology and deity, ritual and surrealism, and how choices made by our ancestors shape our cultures as well as our very being. Set to a new score by composer David Preston.

Terms of Agreement (World Premiere)
by Marcus Jarrell Willis

love /lʌv/ noun
strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties

In his first new creation for Phoenix as Artistic Director, Marcus Jarrell Willis presents the third work of his choreographic series, Terms & Conditions. Focusing on the more ethereal, spiritual and kismet perspectives, it unravels the eternal question: what is true love? Further to understanding this, once you have negotiated the terms, will you accept the agreement? Includes original written compositions by Tomos O’Sullivan and music by various popular artists.
