Director and choreographer Sasha Milavic Davies is known for making engrossing large scale work within dance and theatre and here has devised everything that rises must dance with composer Lucy Railton. This intriguing project exploring relationships, identity and community receives its premiere as part of Dance Umbrella 2018.
