World premiere of Equilux by Fleur Darkin

Friday 10th November 2017

 

Artistic Director Fleur Darkin was recently commissioned by the Danza Contemporánea de Cuba to make a new work with their highly talented dancers.  In October, Fleur travelled to Havana for four weeks to develop the final stage of a new contemporary dance work as part of the British Council's creative islands project.

Fleur’s new work, Equilux, features music from the talented Torben Lars Sylvest and a stunning lighting design by Emma Jones, who has also lit two of Fleur’s previous works, Velvet Petal and Miann.

Equilux will hit the stage tonight for it’s world premiere at the Mella Theatre in Havana, Cuba. Look out for UK and worldwide tour dates coming in 2018/2019.
