Cambridge Junction’s new theatre and dance season kicked off last week with a brand new outdoor dance-theatre piece taking place on the roof the Cambridge Leisure multi-storey car park (behind Cambridge Junction).

The follow up to the ac­claimed Ours Was The Fen Country, Still House’s Of Riders and Running Horses is a major new project choreographed by Dan Canham, a former Hill’s Road Sixth Form student who grew up in Cambridgeshire.

The show was a triumph in exhilarating new dance and live music and one that transformed the roof of a usually dull multistorey car park into a cross arts improvised space.

The choreography and movement draws inspiration from current styles that could be considered a kind of modern folk dance: jumpstyle, free step and house dancing and places them within a surprisingly and secret urban location. Live music for the piece will be provided by highly acclaimed musicians and com­posers Sam Halmarack and Luke Harney.

Our pal Laura Matthews was on hand to capture the show’s opening night – more info on the excellent new season ahead at the Cambridge Junction can be found here.
