Joe Lott Dance, an Oxford-based company of professional dancers, presents a triple bill of exciting and innovative dance as part of the Dancin’ Oxford Festival at the Pegasus Theatre on Wednesday 5th March, including  work from London-based guest choreographer Ieva Kuniskis.  At the heart of the programme is Lott’s new work Alpha, a muscular, athletic and warm-hearted dance and theatre work about being masculine, or not.  Taking inspiration from ‘Machine Man’ films like Robocop and from pagan stories about the nature-loving ‘Green Man’, four dancers kick, waltz, jog and lunge their way through a maze of dating tips, profit margins and protein-shakes.  The company also reprises the much-loved trio Tender which launched Lott’s career in 2012, and guest choreographer Ieva Kuniskis shares her latest work Women’s Tales.  Don’t miss this pleasing, thought-provoking and energising evening of dance and theatre from two up-and-coming UK choreographers.
