Maiden Voyage Dance presents an exciting new triple-bill of contemporary dance where physicality, power and passion abound.

Manifesto showcases the choreographic talent of three men – Dylan Quinn (Ireland), Filip Van Huffel (England, Belgium) and Luke Murphy (Ireland, USA).

Dylan Quinn’s new piece of dance theatre involves men and women grappling with society’s expectations. Filip Van Huffel’s ‘Picture in a Frame’ offers fast-paced dynamic precision, while Luke Murphy sets an intriguing contemporary reimagining of the ballet ‘Les Noces’ in a high school reunion where past and present collide.

Manifesto is principally funded by Arts Council of Northern Ireland, Belfast City Council, Lloyds TSB Foundation, Enkalon Foundation and Esmee Mitchell Trust
