EDge features a new generation of the most promising contemporary dancers performing commissions by exciting young choreographers. Led by Artistic Director Jeanne Yasko, EDge’s 2012 tour showcases performances by a strong and diverse ensemble of 12 dancers.

The programme features new full length works by internationally acclaimed artists Matthias Sperling (Canada/UK) and James Wilton (UK) alongside other works including Alston Takes Cover, a joint commission by The Place and Dance Umbrella. Alston Takes Cover includes three choreographers’ personal takes on Richard Alston’s iconic Wildlife, created by Tony Adigun (Avant Garde Dance), Rachel Lopez de la Nieta (Dog Kennel Hill Project) and Moreno Solinas/Igor Urzelai (BLOOM!). This unique programme is filled with high-level energy and technical excellence that pushes the performers to their limits and leaves you on the edge of your seat.
