Taking place at the Rose Theatre Kingston, Ignition Dance Festival, now in its fourth year, has become a mark in the dance calendar.
Following a nationwide search, new work by seven award-winning choreographers will be performed for the first time at this unique showcase.
Ignition supports mid-career choreographers to create new choreography.
Supported by the Royal Borough of Kingston and Arts Council England, the Ignition line-up includes artists from Kathak, Contemporary, Neo-classical and Dance-Theatre backgrounds.

Rosie Whitney-Fish, Director and Founder of DanceWest and Ignition, said: "The programme offers something for everyone, a chance to watch bit sized pieces of choreography by seven innovative choreographers."
