Transitions Dance Company at The Sherman     

Transitions Dance Company is a group of ten brilliant young performers taking their first steps into the professional dance arena. On Thursday 16 June at 7.30pm at The Sherman the company will perform a programme of newly commissioned work by some of the most engaging dance makers on the international contemporary dance scene:
Rafael Bonachela (Spain) has choreographed for Kylie Minogue and is the Associate Choreographer for Rambert Dance Company. ‘trans[odiem]*’ is a technical and physical work recreated by popular demand from 2004.
Alicia Herrero Simon (Spain) takes a light-hearted look at individuality and inhibition in human behaviour. ‘Entre 32° Y 36° C’ is inspired by the music of Aleksander Tansman.
Thomas Lehmen’s (Germany) choreographic style is slightly philosophical, but always humorous and accessible. This piece focuses on the autonomy of the individual as revealed through the movement skills of the dancers.
Henry Montes (USA) has created ‘Fair Ground’ an improvised work with a sense of gradual and controlled exploration.
Crystal Pite (Canada) is fascinated by the first few moments in meeting someone new. ‘Unstill Life’ is an exquisite, lyrical dance shaped by a soulful Schubert score.
Transitions Dance Company offers audiences the opportunity to experience a rich and varied programme of work ranging from pure dance to dance theatre. Transitions performs at The Sherman as part of the first Cardiff Dance Festival.
