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.

'Into the Light' Image by kind permission of artist David Cobley.

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.

" 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." Hetty Blades (review Cloud Dance Festival)
