Turn is our annual platform for North West† dancers + dance-makers: held in Manchester every spring, 2017’s new format featured short pieces of new work on a single (Friday) night followed by a day of professional development…

Our ninth Turn took place at Contact on Friday 28 April 2017 (7.30pm), with a dozen new northern dance-works — to get a feel for it see the image gallery, or delve further with 2016’s gallery + programme and 2015’s gallery + programme.
