From over 800 applications, 13 dancers successfully completed five audition rounds; the final 13 come from six different countries in Asia, the Americas and Europe, with nine having trained in UK dance institutions.
Part of Dancin’ Oxford’s Spring 2019 festival, Britain’s leading contemporary dance company presents its new ensemble with a triple bill of short dance works showcasing the most exhilarating and fierce choreography around today.

The evening also includes two works that launched the international careers of their choreographers: E2 7SD, a duet by Sydney Dance Company artistic director and former Rambert dancer Rafael Bonachela, and Killer Pig by Israeli dance star Sharon Eyal; a group work showcasing her intense and distinctive movement style.
