EDge 2015 ‘Bank’

It’s EDge time again as the post graduate company from the London Contemporary Dance School take to the road with four new works from dance makers Siobhan Davies, Eleesha Drennan, Robert Clark and Itamar Serussi.

Combine those four with the 12 superb dancers from the company and you have a rich mix of creative work and performance skills on show for all the dance world and joe public (aka muggles) to see.

EDge tell us this much about their current season;

“Two specially commissioned UK choreographers have created works for the company: Robert Clark, himself a former EDge dancer developed The Greeting Game and Sky Arts Academy artist Eleesha Drennan created Treasure. The programme is completed with The Singles, by Netherlands based Israeli choreographer Itamar Serussi, House Choreographer of Scapino Ballet.

Throughout the creation and rehearsal period the choreographers work intensively with EDge; this ranges from sharing ideas, directing movement and teaching steps, to co-creating movement material with the dancers. A wide range of choreographic styles is vital in developing the dancers as individual artists, and I select each choreographer to provide a broad experience for the dancers and for you, the audience to enjoy.”

Along with lots of footage form the work we bring you an interview with two of the company’s dancers Michaela Ellingson and Joshua Boyle that we recommend you watch for their insights concerning their impending career in dance.

Touring continues unabated until mid-July across the UK and into Europe, check the company website for details at the link below.
