Jan McNulty Posted July 28, 2016 Share Posted July 28, 2016 Season of dance favourites at Leeds’ Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre The Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, Leeds has launched a new season of dance for autumn 2016. The theatre will welcome the return of renowned dance companies Ballet Black, James Wilton Dance and 2Faced Dance Company, as well as hosting Phoenix Dance Theatre’s annual home performance and the World Première of Northern Ballet’s new ballet for children. Phoenix Dance Theatre presents Phoenix @ Home from 28 September to 1 October 2016. In celebration of their 35thanniversary the mixed programme will feature classic repertoire, including a revival of their early piece Nightlife at the Flamingo, alongside recent works reflecting their incredible journey to become the UK’s longest standing contemporary dance company outside London. Ballet Black brings their Triple Bill to the theatre on 14 and 15 October 2016. As the centrepiece to an irresistible trilogy of narrative and abstract dance, Christopher Hampson’s Storyville is set to the haunting music of Kurt Weill and tells the story of Nola, a farm girl who falls prey to worldly desires in 1920s New Orleans. The programme also includes two newly devised pieces; To Begin, Begin by Christopher Marney and Cristaux by Arthur Pita. On 2 November 2016 James Wilton Dance returns with Leviathan, a reimagining of Herman Melville’s novel Moby Dick. Following ship captain Ahab, who is hell-bent on capturing the white whale Moby Dick, Leviathan features a blend of athletic dance, martial arts, capoeira and partner-work. The piece will be accompanied by a powerful electro-rock soundtrack by Lunatic Soul. 2Faced Dance Company presents Run on 30 November 2016, a gritty and explosive new triple bill. An explosion of movement, theatre and design, Run will feature commissions by world class choreographers Tamsin Fitzgerald, LenkaVagnerova and newcomer Rebecca Evans, with original music by Angus MacRae and Tomas Vychytil. Northern Ballet’s new ballet for children Goldilocks & the Three Bears will have its World Première at the theatre from24 to 29 October 2016. Following sell-out performances and hugely successful CBeebies TV adaptations of their previous children’s ballets, this latest production is choreographed by Northern Ballet Junior Soloist Nicola Gervasi.
