Heaven on Earth - Sublime Element/Celestial Dawning/Two Bye Two - T01081420672

Tayeb Benamara]'s Sublime Element is a chilled-out, meditative piece of soul-centring movement, danced to a backdrop of rich visual imagery from the natural world.

A dynamic piece of dance, it maximises the dancers' undeniable athleticism and ability in a series of duets, trios and company work. Celestial Dawning embraces dance forms and styles of movement as eclectic as contemporary ballet, hip-hop and martial arts - all performed with a seductive strength.Choreographer Tayeb Benemara (Sublime Element).
