Area Jeune Ballet and VERVE come together for an evening of strikingly original contemporary dance created in Geneva and Leeds.

Swiss company Area Jeune Ballet will perform two works - SAM by Jose Agudo and Kiss & Fly by Gil Carlos Harush.

Drawing inspiration from the Sanskrit term ‘samsāra’, which refers to the ‘wheel of life’ and the idea of rebirth, SAM exudes an atmosphere of ritual, celebration and drama.

Kiss & Fly by Gil Carlos Harush is a work that captures and celebrates those often overlooked moments in life - the sights, kisses, and conversations we take for granted.

Completing the programme, another chance to see VERVE perform the riotous Shutdownby Noa Zuk and Ohad Fishof. 13 dancers storm the stage in this fierce celebration of movement and rhythm.

Area Jeune Ballet is a Swiss pre-professional company enabling accomplished young dancers to sample life as a practising artist and work with the industry’s most influential choreographers.

VERVE is NSCD’s postgraduate company, led by Artistic Director Matthew Robinson.
