Emergence 2024


Emergence, the touring postgraduate dance company of Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford presents three adrenaline-fuelled dance works for this year’s programme performed by a new company of extraordinary dancers.

Israeli choreographer Noa Zuk presents ‘The Ladder’, with new music by Ohad Fishof. Noa’s new dance work explores a slick and stylised movement language that is expressive, extremely rhythmical and driven by gaga technique.

Miguel Altunaga’s ‘Dogma’ captures the raw physicality of the dancers brought to life on stage through their virtuosity and strength as performers featuring new music by Sabio Janiak.

Artistic Director, Joss Arnott completes the bill with ‘SURGE’, a returning work from last year’s programme celebrating Arnott’s trademark, exhilarating choreographic language reimagined with this year’s company dancers. A dramatic, fierce and totally rock ‘n’ roll extravaganza for audiences, be prepared to witness an exquisite interplay between movement and music all of which is accompanied by electrifying, percussive music by composer James Keane performed live on stage by current University of Salford students.
