A retrospective programme of stunning choreography celebrating five years of Ignition Dance Festival

Monday May 14 at the Lyric Hammersmith: Five previous winners of the coveted Ignition Dance Festival choreographic commissions have been asked to present work for a retrospective programme for the Festival’s launch.

After the international artists have presented their works, the winners of the 2018 choreographic commissions will be announced. The awards will be presented by The Guardian’s Dance Writer, Judith Mackrell, Dance writer and critic Graham Watts, The Times’ Donald Hutera, dance writer Nicholas Minns and former Rambert Artistic Director Mark Baldwin.

A varied, mixed bill of engaging and eye-opening dance choreography - a great way for audiences to make discoveries while ideally having a helluva good time.
Choreographers presenting their work are: Sally Marie, Salah El Brogy, Tim Casson, Dane Hurst, Thick and Tight
