This innovative and enjoyable programme is directed with great flair by Victoria Columbus.

It comprises 10 works by third year contemporary dance students, in collaboration with composer Thomas Press, cellist/composer Charles Davenport and voice artist Flo Wilson, along with Drama School lighting and costume students.

The audience is taken on a journey both conceptually and physically. Sadly, there is not space here to discuss all 10 works.

All were danced with great energy and conviction, the music and lighting were excellent throughout and overall the programme says much for the school's tutors and the students' external mentors.
