The international award-winning, all-male 2Faced Dance Company, headed by artistic director and choreographer Tamsin Fitzgerald and known for its physically adventurous performances, perform at Cast, the home of dance in South Yorkshire, on Tuesday March 14.

The evening of dance features three brand-new commissions and will see choreographers Tamsin Fitzgerald, Lenka Vagnerová and Rebecca Evans explore fear and the darker side of humanity.

With groundbreaking movement and theatre, designs and original musical composition, RUN promises to be an exhilarating evening of contemporary dance theatre brought to life by five outstanding male dancers.

Speaking about RUN as part of an already exciting year for the company, artistic director of 2Faced Dance, Tamsin Fitzgerald, said: “RUN marks a pivotal point for the company within both our touring history and the important work that we are leading on within gender equality. Having launched The BENCH and following our recent visit to India, we are really starting to see a spark of change surrounding the barriers faced by female choreographers working within the dance sector.”

With a new company of dancers and an exceptional choreographic, design and musical team working on the creation of the work, RUN will mark one of the most exciting periods within the company’s history and demonstrates a real commitment to supporting women as artists.

Czech choreographer Lenka Vagnerová, whose work explores the physical capabilities and boundaries of man’s body, said: “I am very pleased that Tamsin Fitzgerald has asked me to be part of the company’s next triple bill. As a female choreographer I look forward to working with the company’s all-male group – I think it will be challenging and rewarding for both parties.

“My intention is to find different layers and connections in mythological fallen angels and human beings in order to explore the choice of good and evil in our lives and life path. Our society is full of fallen angels.”
