REQUIEM (excerpts)  
by Dane Hurst  
  
Former Phoenix Artistic Director Dane Hurst’s critically acclaimed Requiem is a powerful reimagining of Mozart’s awe-inspiring choral lament and an emotional response to the grief experienced by so many during the pandemic. This 5-star “stunning” (The Times) production premiered at Leeds Grand Theatre as part of LEEDS 2023: Year of Culture.  
  
CLOUDBURST 
by Miguel Altunaga  
  
Miguel Altunaga’s daring new work explores mankind’s relationship to tribe and community, mythology and deity, ritual and spirituality, and how choices made by our ancestors shape our cultures, as well as our very being. Set to a new score by composer David Preston. 
 
  
TERMS OF AGREEMENT  
by Marcus Jarrell Willis  
In his first new creation for Phoenix as Artistic Director, Marcus Jarrell Willis presents the third work of his choreographic series, Terms & Conditions, unravelling the eternal question: what is true love? Further to understanding this, once you have negotiated the terms, will you accept the agreement?
