About this event:

Created by Dean Mortlock

Merlin Theatre, Frome

Yorke Dance Project celebrates 20 years of performing dance by past masters and emerging artists from the UK and USA. This celebratory programme includes works by world-renowned choreographers Sir Kenneth MacMillan and Robert Cohan, alongside emerging Los Angeles choreographer Sophia Stoller and Yolande Yorke-Edgell.

An excerpt from MacMillan’s Playground is one of the featured works in this anniversary programme, its first restaging since its premiere at the 1979 Edinburgh Festival.

Also featured is Cohan’s Communion set to music by Nils Frahm and designed by John B Read. Both works will be performed by award-winning guest artists Jonathan Goddard and Oxana Panchenko.

Completing the programme is a Cohan Collective commission from Stoller and composer Justin Scheid.

The final work by Yorke-Edgell reflects her own experience of working with dance legends Richard Alston, Bella Lewtizky and Robert Cohan. With highly acclaimed and athletic dancers performing engaging, thought-provoking and enlightening new work, this is a rare evening of exceptional dance.
