WALES’ national dance company makes a welcome return to Malvern Theatres this May with a ravishing and entrancing triple bill of international work.
This new programme – to be performed on Tuesday and Wednesday, May 1 and 2 - pushes the company’s 12 dancers to the limit revealing both their supreme talent and individuality.
World-famous choreographer Ohad Naharin contrasts a hypnotic female duet set to Ravel’s famous music in Bolero with a ceremonial dance encapsulating the physicality of the five male dancers in Black Milk.
Itzik Galili, renowned for creating passionate and dynamic choreography, returns with another new commission after delighting audiences with Romance Inverse while Phantoms Of Us is a powerful new work from Eleesha Drennan, accompanied by evocative visuals from artist Sue Williams.
Founded in 1983 as Diversions, the company moved in 2004 to new, purpose-built premises at the Dance House in Wales – based at the Millennium Centre, Cardiff. In 2008, the company was recognised with a Beacon Company award for excellence by the Arts Council of Wales and a year later changed its name to National Dance Company Wales.
