Dance at Middlesex University welcomes you to New Horizons: A Dancing Festival showcasing performances by final year students.


In Year 3, Middlesex dance performance students have the option of being assessed in the performance of both new and recreated works. Dancing in recreated work allows students to engage with major pieces from the modern dance repertory, much as actors and musicians engage with the respective canons in their field. Dancing in newly created work gives a different, but equally challenging experience with the opportunity of working with professional choreographers. We are very pleased to present collaborative works between students and choreographers Sarah Sulemanji & Sian Hopkins, Leroy Dias Dos Santos, Maga Judd and Impermanence Dance Theatre. There will also be revised performances of Sir Robert Cohan’s Tzaikerk (1967) directed by Anne Donnelly, Sarah Sulemanji and Siân Hopkins and Memory Stack (2007) choreographed by Chris Tudor.


We hope you enjoy this exciting programme of dancing and choreography. Thank you for supporting these young dance artists as they prepare to embark on the next stage of their dance careers.
