Phoenix Dance presents Caroline Finn's 'BLOOM'

2 February 2015

Co-commissioned by Re:Bourne as part of the New Adventures Choreographer Award, Caroline Finn’s Bloom will be presented by Phoenix Dance Theatre. 

The 10-venue tour kicks-off at West Yorkshire Playhouse, Leeds on 11 February and concludes at Northern Stage Newcastle on 28 May, with premières from Artistic Director Sharon Watson, Caroline Finn and a double bill by Christopher Bruce CBE.

Caroline Finn’s Bloom, for 7 dancers, examines how people create ‘facades’, behind which they can become the person they believe they should be. The title Bloom was inspired by the idea that a tree in blossom - a beautiful layer – only masks the true nature of the tree beneath. Finn’s work often presents darkly comic expressions of life and humanity using a playful, quirky and highly engaging choreographic style.
