VERVE | Triple Bill

VERVE presents a striking programme of three new dance works from outstanding artists.

Award-winning choreographer and creator of Extended Play, Jamaal Burkmar creates a new work exploring complex physicality and exquisite timing.

In work by Faye Tan of National Dance Company Wales, the dancers become intoxicated by rhythm and sensation, resulting in moments of catharsis and pure joy.

Lastly, acclaimed Spanish duo KOR’SIA combine striking visuals with a cinematic feel to produce an ambitious, large-scale work.

VERVE comprises eighteen dancers, trained at some of the world’s leading conservatoires. Each year the company commissions choreographers from all over the world to create an artistically distinct, physically daring, and engaging programme of dance work.

VERVE is the internationally-touring postgraduate company of Northern School of Contemporary Dance.
