Emergence company performs at the Dukes, Lancaster and in Leeds and Salford this month

Celebrating its fifth anniversary, Emergence - the postgraduate company created for MA dance students at The University of Salford - is at The Dukes, Lancaster, June 10 with three new works.

You can also see them at the Riley Theatre of the Northern School of Contemporary Dance in Leeds (June 16) and "at home" the New Adelphi Theatre in Salford ( June 23-24, which will also have a live-stream alternative), as they come to the end of their fifth anniversary tour.

The company is spearheaded by internationally award-winning choreographer Joss Arnott and gives students the chance to develop production skills at national venues. Arnott said: "We're extremely excited to be coming to The Dukes this year with three new pieces, featuring 15 extraordinarily talented dancers."

International choreographers Alice Klock and Florian Lochner (FLOCK) present Fortune Favors, a physically charged piece that demonstrates the technical skill of the dancers and explores the idea that we are more powerful than we know. Also featured are Announcing... by Anthony Missen, co-artistic director of Company Chameleon, which captures the raw physicality of the dancers. Arnott himself completes the bill with Surge, a work for the full company celebrating the interplay between "movement and music, individuality and states of euphoria", accompanied by a new percussive score by James Keane.
