Jasmin Vardimon Company (JVC) is one of Britain's most pioneering physical dance theatre companies, creating work that excites both the eye and the mind by pushing the boundaries of human physicality whilst engaging in universal, contemporary themes that strike an emotional chord. Vardimon's powerful art of story-telling integrates multiple layers of communication - combining dance, movement, video, animation, text and music. Her sharp instincts and keen observations of human behaviour deliver beautifully precise characterisation, powerfully brought to life by her company of versatile dancers. Cast from around the world, each performer brings his/her own unique experience, with dynamic results.
World Premiere. Showcasing Vardimon's uniquely theatrical choreographic and directorial style, Pinocchio will combine physical theatre, quirky characterisation, innovative technologies, text and dance to examine the idea of what it means to be human. With insightful humour, engaging drama and an acute observation of behaviour, Pinocchio will take audiences on a wonderful journey of discovery through the parameters of this timeless and beloved fable.
Based on Irish folklore, this classic tale of Good vs. Evil, expressed through the universal language of dance, has thrilled audiences worldwide and catapulted Irish dance to a new dimension and unprecedented worldwide acclaim. As the story unfolds, the Little Spirit travels through time to help the Lord of the Dance protect his people from the challenge of Don Dorcha, the Dark Lord. As this evil dark power challenges the hero, the incredible adventure continues, drawing its audience into a mythical universe of love, danger, and desire.
Please note that neither Michael Flatley nor Nadine Coyle are appearing in this tour.
Immerse yourself in Cathy and Heathcliff's turbulent love affair as the 'best dance actors in the world' capture the spirit of Wuthering Heights and the untamed beauty of the Yorkshire moors.

As children they are inseparable, but over time their childish affection deepens into an overwhelming and devastating love. Emily Bront?'s romantic masterpiece is performed to live music by Golden Globe and Academy Award nominated Claude-Michel Sch?nburg (Les Mis?rables, Miss Saigon & Northern Ballet's Cleopatra) with choreography by David Nixon OBE.

Protopapa joins VERVE having presented choreography across the The Netherlands, Germany and Greece, using wit and absurdity to explore characteristics of humanity with the dancers. Founding-member of New Movement Collective, Wiser creates a technical, intricate piece, dynamically tackling issues relevant to the human condition. Completing the programme, Vahla transforms the stage into an imaginary world where the dancers use movement to deeply investigate the human psyche.
