NORTHERN Dances is a night of new works from some of the most exciting dance artists and choreographers emerging in Liverpool, Manchester, Yorkshire, Newcastle and Edinburgh.

Dance that provokes, beguiles, shocks, makes you laugh, makes you think.

Taciturn (Liverpool) perform their new work Femme, a playful exploration of what it means to be female, through the eyes and guise of some icons of femininity.

Daniela B Larsen and Robert Guy (Liverpool) present This House Smells of Ghosts. Thought and action are not always connected. Sometimes you have to lose yourself before you know where you really are.

Maelstrom (Manchester) The Truth about Me Is examines the way we bend, shift and bury the truth about ourselves to appear more attractive and interesting.

Joelene English (Newcastle) February 11th 1963 is a dramatic characterisation of two individuals who try to become one, a thought provoking and poignant discovery of Sylvia Plath's pursuit to vacate her own body, and Ted Hughes’ possible role in her end.

Nathan Geering (Yorkshire) presents Addiction. A man becomes infatuated with the sound of a violin. But he soon undergoes a transformation when infatuation turns into addiction!

Charlotte Jarvis (Edinburgh) Graceful Warriors is a discovery of who and where we are today, in this very moment. A dance of love, sincerity and freedom…

Northern Dances is a partnership between MDI (Liverpool), Yorkshire Dance (Leeds), Dance City (Newcastle) DiGM (Manchester) and DanceBase (Edinburgh).

Merseyside Dance Initiative is committed to developing new ways of presenting work from the region. This is a partnership with Yorkshire Dance, Dance Initiative Greater Manchester, Dance City (Newcastle) and Dance Base (Edinburgh).

The evening will be one of provocation, laughter, and most importantly: dancing!
