Unknown Pleasures is an intentionally provocative proposition. A completely anonymous programme – no names, no fame and no glory - just the chance to experience an evening of dance unencumbered by preconceptions.
Five international choreographers – four women and one man, ranging from their 30s to their 70s – share their distinctive voices to produce an evening of invention and surprise. Performed by 20 dancers from CCN Ballet de Lorraine, this is a choreographic carte blanche for both audiences and creators.
Unknown Pleasures is curated by Dance Umbrella together with pioneering French company Centre Chorégraphique National - Ballet de Lorraine.
