Joss Arnott Dance present ‘PULSE!’, a brand-new dance and live music experience created for the streets.

Performed entirely around a unique 3.5m high percussion wheel, designed by Eleanor Bull and engineered by Rolls-Royce this adrenaline-fuelled dance and live music production is a combination of rhythmical flare and heart-in-mouth choreography for all the family to enjoy.

For their first ever outdoor production, Joss Arnott Dance partners with a world class design team as a dancer and drummer explore the interplay between movement and music. Arnott’s athletic and unique movement language has been described as “exquisite to watch” (The Stage), “masterful” (Varsity) and “the perfect tonic for British Contemporary Dance” (Londonist).

‘PULSE!’ is supported by Without Walls and Arts Council England through Project Grants. Commissioned by SIRF, Stockton International Riverside Festival, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival (with funding from the Leche Trust), Salisbury International Arts Festival, Pavilion Dance South West, DanceEast and Déda. With additional support from the University of Salford and Rolls-Royce.
