Presenting a thrilling evening of dark dance, STEPMOTHER leads us into a menacing world where macabre folklore meets the terrifying grotesque. Fairy tales distort into nightmares as familiar characters from Snow White to Hansel and Gretel are pursued by a force of monstrous and abusive stepmothers. Pita's 2007 work The Stepfather, originally commissioned by CandoCo, is re-imagined for the second piece. STEPFATHER tells the grisly tale of a twisted family situation inspired by the folk punk 'Country Death Song' from cult American band Violent Femmes. Spiralling into a hellish world of incest and murder, the search for redemption is played out beyond the grave.

Contemporary dance. Richard Alston, Artistic Director of The Place, the UK's leading centre for contemporary dance, is internationally recognised as one of the most influential and inspiring choreographers in British dance.

Deeply rooted in Argentinean culture, tango has fascinated and captivated the world with its sexuality, power and beauty. Cherkaoui's m?longa debuted in 2013, and is the first international large-scale tango production to be directed by a non-Argentine artist. After its highly successful UK premiere at Sadler's Wells, m?longa is now touring across the globe, to great critical acclaim offering audiences the chance to explore the traditional tango dance from another cultural perspective. Internationally renowned for his ground-breaking and critically revered award-winning productions such as Sutra and Babel(words), Cherkaoui takes the idea of a milonga as his starting point - those social dance-evenings held in intimate late night bars in Buenos Aires - and draws on traditional influences, adding a contemporary twist. Having collaborated with an incredibly talented cast of Argentinean dancers and live musicians, Cherkaoui has created "a very beautiful show indeed" (Daily Telegraph), bringing his own unique style to tango. Running time: 1hr 35mins (no interval)
