A dance and physical theatre piece exploring the mythology based upon the ancient creature, the phoenix. After living a long life the phoenix dies in a self-created fire, burning into a pile of ashes. From this, a new phoenix is born, representing a cyclical process of life from death. Through stylised movement, this performance will investigate resurrection, metempsychosis, regeneration and immortality.
