The Point, Eastleigh, is now linked with seven other high-profile dance venues across Europe.

The new DanSCe Dialogues 2 programme offers unique experiences and opportunities for dancers, choreographers and companies.

As part of it, The Point is bringing Normandy-based dance company Group Entorse to Eastleigh on April 18.

ACCIDENS (ce qui arrive) is a dance piece that questions the notion of resilience and the means by which we can overcome a traumatic experience. Lighting plays an integral part to the production, with Nicholas Olivier’s design changing the space where dancers perform.

The following day on April 19 at The Berry Theatre, Hedge End, after a sell-out five-star run at the Edinburgh Festival, Les Enfants Terribles will bring The Trench to the stage.

It’s inspired by the true story of a miner who became entombed in a tunnel during the First World War. As the horror threatens to engulf him, he finds that not everything in the darkness is what it seems, and there’s a strange world beneath the mud and death.

The production is written by Oliver Lansley with music by acclaimed artist Alexander Wolfe.
