Virtual Descent




Made to an original percussion concerto recorded by BBC National Orchestra of Wales with soloist Julian Warburton, and written by their resident composer Mark Bowden, Virtual Descent is set in an imaginary future in which the dancers seek to recover our lost humanity. The necessity to communicate and evolve makes them warriors of hope in a dystopian land.



“An exceptional and absorbing Pleasure”- Virtual Descent, the Guardian, Judith Mackrell 3/11/13


“Another development for the talented choreographer, her vocabulary is rich in new inventive movement and mesmerising intensity.”

Mike Smith, Theatre in Wales March 3, 2013
