What's on in Thurrock
New English Ballet Theatre presents Love Games: 5 inspired choreographies, 5 different stories, 5 different games...
Choreography by Wayne Eagling, Daniela Cardim, Ruth Brill, Morgann Runacre-Temple and Peter Leung.
In Wayne Eagling’s Jeux, a flirtatious game is transformed into a tribute to Vaslav Nijinsky, reflecting on the power and vulnerability of the artist.
Relationship games are afoot in Daniela Cardim’s Vertex, a dynamic response to Guarnieri’s music.
Ruth Brill’s Domino plays with patterns and pairings in a game of human dominoes.
Set to a modern arrangement of Schubert’s ‘Rosamunde Quartet’, Morgann Runacre-Temple’s Rosamunde plays with ideas of revealing and concealing.
Peter Leung’s All in passing explores the way relationships shift and morph as time passes.
