NDCWales Presents

Spring 2020

February - May 2020

Recognising that we live in a time of political, economic and social uncertainty, the Spring Tour in 2020 brings together work that examines different versions of community.

NDCWales will present a new dance piece by choreographer Alexandra Waierstall. She is known for her elegant and shimmering style which moves groups of dancers with a strong sense of musicality and a poetic physicality.

Rygbi by NDCWales’ Artistic Director Fearghus Ó Conchúir will be an adapted longer version of his outdoor piece that celebrates the number of people it takes to make an effective team; and highlights the hopes, dreams, glory and passion of rallying together on and off the pitch.

Lunatic by Nigel Charnock is a revival of one of NDCWales’ favourite dance pieces. Lunatic takes 1930s vintage styling and music and smashes it together with 1990s pop culture and character, Lunatic was created in 2009 by one of Britain’s most influential choreographers and is fuelled by questions surrounding nationality, gender and class identity which remain as relevant for as it was then as it is for 2020.
