“Channel Rose was unflawed; visually stunning, simplistic while embodying exactly what contemporary dance should be: engaging, thought provoking and both theatrically and physically inspiring.”
– Buzz magazine 2014.
Three extraordinary dancers embark on a physical and poetic escapade in search of utopia. Dancing the fine line between fantasy and realism they unfold the fabric of human motivation. Grappling with the grit of optimism. Haunted by the desire to escape.
Channel Rose is filled with bold and sensual physicality. It’s an unforgettable visual feast, evoking the riches of the imagination and fuelled by stirring rhythms.
“A fine and assured new choreographic voice” Luke Jennings, The Guardian
