RNCM Theatre, 28 October 2015

Josh Arnott Dance

A young, vibrant company with an eclectic, electrifying approach to dance.

They performed three works in total: 24, V and Wide Awakening. For 24, we had at most four dancers onstage, though that was rare. Duos dominated, sometimes solos or trios were seen. A single dancer for V, very balletic, with pointy toes and turned out feet. Emily Pottage was the dancer, I think. The longest work, Wide Awakening, saw all four dancers dressed in red. There was a stirring accompaniment by Dame Evelyn Glennie, showing why she is such a virtuoso percussionist.

Altogether, the evening had lyricism and athleticism, grace and power. Your mind wandered along xysts constructed by the dancers’ graceful movement. Perfect modern dance.

Josh Arnott Dance are touring the UK throughout November, further details can be found here.
