Phoenix Dance Theatre

Phoenix Dance Theatre is delighted to launch an exciting birthday programme to celebrate their milestone 40th birthday, bringing together an eclectic range of work from across the company’s illustrious history.  

Pave Up Paradise  

Lost Dog’s dynamic, sensual and confrontational duet revisits Adam and Eve after their fall from grace.   

Heart of Chaos  

Choreographed by Phoenix’s former Artistic Director Darshan Singh Bhuller, this work captures the spirit of this colossal figure who challenged the segregated sport and white America in the era of Jim Crow and the Jazz Age.  


Henri Oguike’s unflinching and powerful piece embraces both the frenzy of the battlefield and the calm at the centre of the storm.  


Choreographed by Shapiro and Smith, this satirical fly on the wall dance, elegantly captures the complexity of human interaction and ordinary passions that define family life  

Harmonic Breakdown  

In Jane Dudley’s masterpiece, a lone female dancer creates a poetic representation of an individual’s struggle to gain self-respect and dignity in a cruel, volatile world.
