Some of the above are working titles because one of the best things about On the Verge is that we are presenting new work by emerging artists and companies. Watch this space for more information about each project and artist in the next few weeks and months.
...AND, in collaboration with the Liverpool Comedy Festival we are presenting: Wives Tales with ‘Karaoke’
AND that’s not all...as part of On the Verge this year, Hope Street presents:
Cia. Vero Cendoya, a Barcelona-based dance company, with the UK premier of the award-winning LA PARTIDA, a show of dance and football.
Performed on a football pitch, 5 dancers, 5 football players and a referee gather together in a peculiar game with its own rules.
In LA PARTIDA there are no dancers ‘interpreting’ football players, but the dancers are directly faced with real players in a 60 minute fantastic trip that moves between the passion for sport and art.
