Celebrating its 5th year, mapdance is one of the leading postgraduate dance companies in the UK. Recruiting dancers nationally and internationally mapdance commissions new repertoire from renown and upcoming contemporary choreographers and directors. This year the company has commissioned works by Rose English, Yaara Dolev (The Tel-Aviv Dance Company), Ben Duke (Lost Dog) & Darren Ellis (RADC & Random) as well as restaging Gregory Maqoma’s powerful work Zola Station. Ranging in style and emotion, mapdance’s programme offers a diverse and refreshing mixture of dance theatre, lyrical choreography, punchy physicality and intriguing humour. It is a mixed bill that offers something for everyone.

“Inches from its audience, the troupe radiated energy. A sharp and pithy
showcase…rare to find and thrilling to watch”
