Three works by choreographer Joe Moran. Each a very different response to 'what can dance say, today?’  

Full-bodied dancing, stillness, virtuosity and overblown masculinity all come under inspection in this daring and arresting evening of dance. 

Moran performs his compelling solo Decommission presented along with his trio Obverse, commissioned for The Place Prize for dance sponsored by Bloomberg, and the bold all-male ensemble, Arrangement, with BAFTA-award winning sound artist Kaffe Matthews performing live. 

‘ Moran proved that dance can speak a distinctly twenty-first century visual arts language.’
