VERVE 2019: At a glance

VERVE 2019

Adventurous. Athletic. Absorbing. In 2019 VERVE presents an ambitious programme of bold new dance work created by internationally-acclaimed and award-winning choreographers Joan Clevillé (Catalonia), Maxine Doyle (UK) and Ben Wright (UK), alongside a restaging of Shutdown by Noa Zuk and Ohad Fishof (Israel).

Experience an evening of physically charged and refreshingly original dance, performed by dance artists on the cusp of their professional careers. See where dance is right now, and where it may go next.

The company comprises thirteen exceptional dancers, trained at some of the world’s leading conservatories. This year, as well as dancers from the UK, VERVE includes dancers from Chile, Italy, Portugal, Singapore, and Uruguay; creating a truly international dance company. VERVE is the postgraduate company of Northern School of Contemporary Dance (NSCD) and is led by Artistic Director Matthew Robinson.
