All the energy of this annual whirlwind of new northern dance condensed.
Twelve works, twelve articulations of human expression.
One extraordinary night of dance.

Mr. President, Prime Minister, Ladies + Gentlemen, we stand before you…
Folding like paper, playing with your food…
The shifting politics of the movement of people…
Ancestral memory, the human condition, the colour blue…
Blind certainty, a lover’s look and a whisper from the unknown…

Fluidly lyrical, effervescently acrobatic or eccentrically innovative, let Turn transport you into a frenzy of dance. To get a feel for it, see Turn 2016’s programme + image gallery.
