Following a hugely successful third tour, Emergence, the postgraduate dance company of Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford, returns with a new cohort of 15 dancers, 3 new works and the chance to see a reimagining of one of Arnott’s acclaimed productions

 Gaga choreographer Gosia Mielech’s raw, authentic and passionate piece explores the idea of totality and what it means to live life in a total way. Kevin Finnan, the artistic director of Motionhouse, presents a physically charged and seamless piece brought to life on stage capturing the virtuosity of the dancers. The third new work in the programme has been choreographed by Vidya Patel who has collaborated with the dancers to explore an exciting and new dance language through Kathak influenced movement and rhythms.

Joss Arnott completes the bill with Wild Shadows, his exhilarating, technical masterpiece featuring a cinematic music score and stunning lighting.

Pay What You Can is an ‘honesty box’ for the theatre. We and the artists will continue to programme and produce high quality events and ask you to pay what you can afford.

As a guide, for those in full time employment we would appreciate you paying between £5 and £15. We also understand people’s income can be precarious, hence the lower price options. All revenue from ticket sales for events at New Adelphi Theatre will always go back to support professional artists, through residencies, commissions, touring work or for more bespoke projects where the student experience is enhanced through co-creation with arts professionals. We thank you for all your continued support.

Please note that all tickets are for unallocated seating.

Please note that ticket sales will end half an hour before each show, at 7pm.

Please note: Checking the wheelchair option will also reserve a free seat for an essential companion.
