ReFINED is a thrilling mixed programme packed with solos, duets, trios and quartets plucked from some of Phoenix's most popular recent works.

Designed specifically for smaller stages, the ReFINED programme is an opportuni­ty to see one of the UK's longest standing contemporary dance companies perform in a local venue.

The programme is curated by the company's Artistic Director Sharon Watson, who said: "Taking the dancers off the main stages to smaller, local venues is a really intimate way for our audiences to connect with the work and the dancers.

"The programme showcases some of the most breath-taking movements choreographed by a number of leading names within the industry."

Danielle Daglan, Programming & Venue Development Manager at Craven District Council, said: "We're delighted to welcome Phoenix Dance Theatre back to Skipton; they are a world-renowned contemporary dance company and have proved very popular with audiences in the past. This is a fantastic opportunity for Craven residents to see a top-class contemporary dance performance."

The performance includes two films, one of which is Ghost Peleton, by Mark Huskisson, a highlight of The Yorkshire Festival 2014. The evening concludes with a post-show discussion giving the audience a chance to talk directly with the performers.

The production takes place at Skipton Town Hall on Monday June 26 at 7.45pm. Tickets are £10 for adults and £8 for concessions and can be bought from the Skipton Tourist Information Centre in Skipton Town Hall or by calling 01756 792809.
