Choreographers Keira Martin and Josh Hawkins have come together for a first-time collaboration and a brand-new commission for year two and three Dance@Salford students.
'Take it or Leave It’ is a new piece of highly physical dance theatre inspired by ‘Hobsons Choice’ which was based and filmed in Salford. In collaboration with the students, ‘Take it or Leave it’ explores people, places, the role of individuals in a transient city and focuses on ideas of unity and bringing people together. This relevant film work looks at personal choice, respecting others choices and belonging.
Other new works to be shown at the festival are:
Inspired by Pina Bauch's Nelken Line, 'Natural Right' is a choreographed promenade through Peel Park evoking the park's connection with Nature, Chartism and Suffrage. The work is a collaboration between MA Dance Students and Debbie Milner.
A collaboration between First Year Dance@Salford students and Programme Leader Lisa Cullen, exploring themes of arriving, connecting and belonging.
This event is part of the Peel Park 2020 Engagement programme, supported by the #NationalLotteryHeritageFund

Pay What You Can is an ‘honesty box’ for the theatre. We and the artists will continue to programme and produce high quality events and ask you to pay what you can afford.
As a guide, for those in full time employment we would appreciate you paying between £5 and £15. We also understand people's income can be precarious, hence the free and lower price options. All revenue from ticket sales for events at New Adelphi Theatre will always go back to support professional artists, through residencies, commissions, touring work or for more bespoke projects where the student experience is enhanced through co-creation with arts professionals. We thank you for all your continued support.
Please note that all tickets come with a Fatsoma booking fee, ranging from 50p to £1.
