California Connections

Yorke Dance Project celebrates its 25th anniversary with a new mixed programme honouring the company’s connection to California and the legacies of three pioneering female choreographers – Isadora Duncan, Martha Graham and Bella Lewitzky.

The Pieces


Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s tribute to Isadora Duncan is reimagined and distilled into a new one-act, chamber work exploring the conflict between Isadora’s search for love and her pioneering mission to change the art of dance.

Errand into the Maze

Martha Graham created this masterpiece in 1947, exploring the depths of human fear and sexual power struggles, based on the legends of Ariadne, Theseus and the Minotaur.

Meta 4

Bella Lewitzky choreographed this boldly sculptural and physically demanding performance to an original score by Robert Xavier Rodriguez in 1994.

Completing the programme, Artistic Director Yolande Yorke-Edgell premieres a new work inspired by the power of these three women and the essence of their enduring legacies.
