Verve are 10 years old, apparently, and for this outing of the post graduate company, from Northern School of Contemporary Dance, of 12 dancers they are performing work by Anton Lachky, Renaud Wiser, Efrosini Protopapa and Athina Vahla. We caught up with the company at their final show for this tour at The Riley.
This year it is, for certain, an eclectic mix of pieces from an eclectic mix of dance makers. There's a bit of conceptual, a bit of theatre, a few props and a lot fo excellent movement from some highly skilled dancers.
Verve 2016 was performed by Rob Anderson, Iris Borràs Anglada, Joshua Tarifa Nuñez, Clémentine Télesfort, Faye Tan, Kai Tomioka, Stefania Pinato, Holly Steppel, Anna Fooks, Chris Hurst, Amarnah Amuludun and Jake Evans.
Filmed at The Riley Theatre on June 24th, 2016.
