2024 PROGRAMME: Play, pause, repeat

Play, Pause, Repeat is a stunning programme showcasing some of the best emerging dancers from the North East of England. Including two new commissions by former Rambert artist Patricia Okenwa and award-winning choreographer Jamaal Burkmar, Play, Pause, Repeat explores the complex and often contradictory nature of human connection and what makes us want to play, explore, learn and share again and again and again.

Choreographer Patricia Okenwa and composer Quinta's new work explores how we start over again and the morsels and moments we can create and recreate.

Winner of the New Adventure Choreographer Award 2016, Jamaal Burkmar's work, which has music and improvisation at its heart, explores love, relationships and the angst and discomfort involved in the 'not knowing'.
