A triple bill of dynamic, abstract choreography by critically acclaimed choreographer Michael Clark.
The triptych opens with a coolly refined reflection to the music of Erik Satie, before exploding into a propulsive piece to the punk rock of Patti Smith, featuring a video installation by Charles Atlas. Lastly a moving and elegiac tribute to Bowie which includes his swansong, Blackstar.
