Premier of CRAZY JOANNA - Artistic Directors Jenni Wren (Slanjayvah Danza) and Aurora Fearnley (Little Northern Light) combine their talents to create 'possibly the most significant work you will see this year'. A socially conscientious, dance and film integrated piece, recounting the anguished escape of a woman trapped in abusive relationships.
From the tormented life of medieval Spanish Queen ‘Juana la Loca’, through the backstreets of Buenos Aires at the birth of the Tango - to a neighbourhood near you.
Supported by the Arts Council England, Yorkshire, a lottery award, through the Grants for the arts programme.

BLIND PASSION - Live Cut - “Passion cannot be described, only experienced” With the use of blindfolds, intricate contact work - sprinkled with Tango influences, this duet reveals an explosion of seductive delights, subtly revealing and dynamic, challenging the audience with intrigue and question.
"..an explosive and memorable work....The movement is well-crafted, fluid and impressively executed.... the strong sense of touch that it created and striking passionate energy of the work was compelling and intriguing."
