Emergence Dance Company
Emergence is the postgraduate dance company of award-winning Joss Arnott Dance and the University of Salford.
This bold company of 12 dancers head out on their first tour with new works created especially for them by Phoenix Dance Theatre’s Artistic Director, Sharon Watson and company Artistic Director Joss Arnott. Taking the idea of empowerment as a starting point, both choreographers have created pieces that play to the incredible strengths of the dancers.
Sharon’s 'And Still I Walk…’ takes inspiration from women’s suffrage and the struggles that we as humans still face today.
This deeply emotional piece features a transformative score of music by Hans Zimmer and Max Richter which enhances the sense of being taken on an emotional journey, and costumes inspired by a visit to the People’s History Museum in Manchester.
Speaking about the piece, Sharon said “the piece has been inspired by 100 years of the suffragette’s movement. A movement which I think and believe is still relevant to us today. It’s a message that speaks to our females as well as our men”.
Joss Arnott’s work ‘When Worlds Collide’ also features a powerful, cinematic score which has been composed specially by James Keane.
Taking the music as a starting point, Arnott works with the dancers to create the piece, first teaching them his unique physical language before the collaboration can begin.
This language, which is rooted in classical and contemporary techniques builds on the dancer’s strengths creating a work that is thrilling to watch. The work is an exhilarating, technical masterclass which features an original, cinematic music score and an elaborate lighting design.
