MAPDANCE will hit the stage at the Theatre Royal Winchester.

On June 7, 14 dancers will showcase three different newly commissioned dance works.

One explores the relationship between rock and music, one will highlight the social and political issues relating to identity, gender, social justice, culture and class. Finally, the third dance will centre around the human connection. The choreographer Robert Clarks's restaged 2021 "Closer" will also explore the desire for changes and its repercussions.
