Joss Arnott Dance: Triple Bill

80 minutes including interval
Djanogly Theatre

Suitable for 12+

Joss Arnott Dance’s new classical contemporary programme will take you on a gripping journey through powerful and heart-pounding choreography that has established the company as one of the most exciting voices in British contemporary dance.

Created in collaboration with the some of the industry’s foremost dancers, composers and designers, Arnott’s new Triple Bill consists of two brand new dance works – A Movement in 3 and RUSH – alongside the company’s internationally award-winning solo V that will feature live music for the first time.

This performance will feature a curtain raised by Midlands Associates, with music composed by University of Nottingham Music student, Emily Dimino.

Emily is an early career composer from Aylesbury in Buckinghamshire. She is a final year undergraduate student studying BA Music (Hons) at the University of Nottingham. Emily has a keen interest in composing chamber music for strings, having been exposed to the rich and diverse range of music for string at Max Baillie’s chamber music programme Es Muss Sein. Emily’s music incorporates modal and folk elements and is inspired by composers such as Bartok, Shostakovich and Prokofiev.

Emily’s composition ‘Dynasty Sonata for Violin, Viola and Cello’ was chosen by Joss Arnott Dance as their curtain raiser piece at their Nottingham Lakeside Art’s performance. Emily is delighted that Midlands Associates, a company of talented young dancers, will be taking the opportunity to perform onstage to her music. She is extremely passionate about youth engagement in the arts, and is a trainee youth theatre assistant at Nottingham Lakeside Arts and works as an ambassador for both Rock Challenge (a performing arts competition for young people) and the National Youth Theatre of Great Britain.
