VERVE presents a breathtaking triple bill performed by 18 exceptional dancers.

Artistic Director Matteo Marfoglia‘s debut creation for the company A Field of Beauty is a visually-stunning and virtuous work celebrating individuality, uniqueness and freedom of expression.

Los Angeles-born, Berlin-based choreographer Joy Alpuerto Ritter has crafted a character-driven work exploring the intricate dynamics of family relationships, questioning what lies beneath the surface of a family portrait.

Rounding off the triple bill, acclaimed French collective (LA)HORDE present a reworking of People used to die – originally created for the Montreal School of Contemporary Dance in 2014. Taking inspiration from the European movement ‘Jumpstyle’, the work is an explosive and unrelenting test of physical endurance for the dancers.


VERVE is the internationally touring company of Northern School of Contemporary Dance
(NSCD). Each year the company commissions choreographers from all over the world to create
an artistically distinct, physically daring, and engaging programme of dance work.
