Joss Arnott Dance and Dame Evelyn Glennie join forces for 5|0 – a birthday celebration marking the company’s 5th and Dame Evelyn’s 50th.      

The 9-venue autumn 2015 tour kicks-off at DanceEast, Ipswich on 16 October and concludes at Wiltshire Music Centre on 21 November.

Joss Arnott Dance presents a triple bill of new, powerful and heart-pounding choreography, performed by the company’s trademark all-female cast this autumn. Created by Artistic Director Joss Arnott, this new triple bill demonstrates why the company has emerged as one of the most exciting voices in British contemporary dance.

Joss Arnott Dance has joined forces with GRAMMY award-winning composer and percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie, who will co-write an original score with Musical Director James Keane and perform live for Wide Awakening, the climax of the triple bill, created for five dancers.

The triple bill also features 24, a quartet inspired by the themes and concepts within the Alexander McQueen V&A exhibition ‘Savage Beauty’ and a solo, V.

Full details of the work, collaborators and the tour will be announced later this summer.
