Choreographed in recent weeks and filmed at the Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre, we're putting the young creative talents of our Company centre-stage.

Watch exclusively online, and if you can, please consider making a donation when you watch.

Act I: Termagant

A Pay As You Feel World Première

The Maiden, the Mother, the Wild Woman, the Elder. This piece probes the very nature of femininity and centres around the expression of women as multidimensional beings. The dancers are revealed as part of a community, each embodying a different archetype. The women hold space for one another as they move though the different aspects of their characters.
