TEN – The Place, London
“The sheer physicality, Technical ability, style and discipline were full of emotion and expression… energetic and magical.” Birmingham Post
At a time when more and more people across the world find themselves having to leave their lands, ideas of home and belonging are unknown.
Inspired by global migration, TEN is centred around the relationship between two brothers. Full of intense physical power and very human fragility, TEN explores the concepts of moving away, looking at how and why people choose unimagined destinies over the lives they’d always thought they’d live.
Combining contemporary dance with an essence of Flamenco, Kathak and ACE’s inimitable Afro-fusion style, TEN is a visceral and exhilarating dance production.
Artistic Directors: Ian Parmel and Gail Parmel
Choreography: José Agudo and Ace dance and music
