£16 – £18

Let’s Dance International Frontiers 2022 returns with a unique launch event to celebrate International Dance Day, embracing the theme of this year’s festival, In Situ: Responding to Space, Place, People and Time.

Siren Calls: To an Illusive Journey
Composed by Philip Herbert
Choreographed by Monique Jonas

Commissioned by Serendipity, composed by Philip Herbert and choreographed by Monique Jonas, Siren Calls: To an Illusive Journey seeks to honour the Windrush generation and crystallise their experiences.  With choreography that encapsulates the strength, tenacity and spirit of adventure into a new world, whilst the fluidity of the music for string quartet considers echoes of the past, hopes of the future and the density of the middle passage.  This work, embodies the energy of different choreographers and spaces, recognising the richness and legacy of the African Caribbean Diaspora in the UK, with Thomas Prestø’s interpretation taking place on 30 April.

Herbert is an award-winning composer whose work has been performed by orchestras and ensembles internationally.

Jonas is a dancer and choreographer whose work bridges contemporary with African and African Caribbean movement vocabularies.  Founder of Jona Dance, she has worked with New Adventures and was recently commissioned to create Checkmate for the Adventures in Film Project.
