THREE SCORE DANCE COMPANY: WINTER FESTIVALLive Performances / Events
30 NovemberThree Score Dance Company is three years old.
It was created to offer contemporary dance opportunities for women and men aged 60+. The Company commissions work that engages, entertains and captures the imagination; delivering performances that change perceptions, challenge expectations and champion the art form of contemporary dance.
Come to Three Score’s Winter Festival to celebrate these first three years. There will be a rich mixture of dance companies, some with experience and some newly formed – the only connection being that all dancers will all be over the age of 55.

MARK BRUCE COMPANY: DRACULALive Performances / Events
2 December - 4 DecemberMark Bruce’s company of ten exceptional dancers bring Bram Stoker’s haunting, erotic tale to life in a heart wrenching and magical dance theatre production. With an eclectic mix of music from Bach and Mozart to Ligeti and Fred Frith, Bruce explores choreographic styles ranging from the subtlety of classical etiquette to visceral contemporary dance.
Jonathan Goddard plays the infamous Vampire Count, whose sinister and ruthless ambitions challenge the very fabric of Victorian society. As his victims and opponents rally against him they must face the darkness and savagery within themselves.
Winner of the prestigious South Bank Sky Arts Award for Dance, this critically acclaimed production should not be missed.
“I’d be surprised if I saw a more entertaining piece of dance theatre this year. Kill for a ticket.”

For his new dance-theatre work, Lloyd Newson, Artistic Director of DV8 Physical Theatre, interviewed more than 50 men asking them frank questions initially about love and sex. One of those men was John. What emerged was a story that is both extraordinary and touching. John authentically depicts real life stories, where movement and spoken word combine to create an intense, moving and poignant theatrical experience.
Age: 16+ Contains adult themes, strong language and nudity.
