Northern Ballet and Dep Arts pairing continues


The first Dep Arts season of contemporary dance at Northern Ballet concludes this month with a performance from London-based Company Pair Dance.


Formed in 2006 by choreographer Harriet Macauley and sound design artist Richard Leonard, this exciting company has performed nationally and internationally as far afield as New York; Canada; Turkey and Spain, where they won the Masdanza International Dance Contest in 2010.


Harriet's choreographic works are created with original sound scores written, arranged and produced by Richard. Her work explores the relationship between movement and sound with performers working on the brink of their limits both mentally and physically.

Performing their fast-paced new work Duality, they use digital media and illusion to bring dance and technology together to interact and exist simultaneously.


The performance will be the final part of the spring season of contemporary dance from Dep Arts in collaboration with Northern Ballet. After a highly successful season that has brought Joss Arnott Dance, James Wilton Dance, Rosie Kay Dance Company and now Pair Dance to Leeds, the relationship continues to go from strength to strength with an exciting autumn season soon to be announced.
