This Autumn, critically acclaimed Joss Arnott Dance will present a triple bill that will take you on a gripping journey through powerful, precise and heart-pounding choreography that has made the company one of the most exciting voices in British contemporary dance.

Joss Arnott Dance has joined forces with GRAMMY award-winning and 2015 Polar Music Prize laureate Dame Evelyn Glennie, who has collaborated with the company's Musical Director James Keane, to create the thundering score she will perform live onstage for the climax of the triple bill - Wide Awakening.

5|0 is a birthday celebration marking the company’s 5th and Dame Evelyn’s 50th so expect a high-octane, adrenaline-fuelled evening of dance and live music.

The touring programme will feature

24 – A quartet inspired by the themes and concepts within the Alexander McQueen exhibition ‘Savage Beauty’, exploring ethereal and animalistic qualities through fragility and severity.

V – a technical and emotive solo that explores the rare and contorted beauty our bodies have to offer.

Wide Awakening – An exhilarating and mesmerising new work featuring 5 dancers, where powerful movement and a pounding percussive score combine to the point of exhaustion.

5|0 is a co-commission between Blackpool Grand, DanceEast, Swindon Dance, Pavilion Dance, South East Dance, CAST and developed with Dance City. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England and PRS for Music Foundation.

There will be a post show talk on Friday 13 November.
