Eliot Smith Dance's newest contemporary dance programme for Spring 2020 will take you on a spellbinding journey; through a powerful signature choreographic style that has established the company as one of the most exciting voices in British contemporary dance.

Created in collaboration with some of the industry’s foremost, award-winning choreographers, dancers, and fashion designers, Smith's new Triple Bill consists of two newest dance works by Balbir Singh and Eliot Smith and a brand new work by New York dance-maker Jake Deibert.

The first piece in this triple bill, On Red Kites, is the result of Eliot Smith’s observations and creative interpretation of one of Britain’s rarest and most spectacular birds, – the red kite. The work is performed by four dancers, set to Brahms Sonata for violin and piano and features costumes designed by fashion designer Andrew Gregson.

Carrying on from this is Jake Diebert, presenting Onward, a short solo that explores the idea of taking unusual or less traveled paths, set to Haydn's Cello concerto.

Balbir Singh completes the bill with I am not an Indian dancer?, an exchange of powerful rhythmic footwork, inspired by Kathak, fused with spellbinding contemporary movement performed by a guest Kathak dancer and Eliot Smith.
