Mr. President, Prime Minister, Ladies + Gentlemen, we stand before you…
Folding like paper, playing with your food…
The shifting politics of the movement of people…
Ancestral memory, the human condition, the colour blue…
Blind certainty, a lover’s look and a whisper from the unknown…

Fluidly lyrical, effervescently acrobatic or eccentrically innovative, let Turn transport you into a frenzy of dance. To get a feel for it, see Turn 2016’s programme + image gallery.

Leaving feeling inspired… Eclectic, brilliant, vibrant.
Fantastic combination of diverse performers… entertaining & engaging.
Enjoyed the eclectic mix. A good way to sample dance, especially if you haven’t seen a lot before.
Great to see creative innovative new local work. Really good vibe.
