  • Christopher Bruce’s reputation as one of Britain’s outstanding dancer/choreographers is based partly on his mix of classical / modern idioms and partly on his commitment to socio-conscious themes.
  • Silence is the end of our song is a moving ballet danced to a series of songs from Chile and dedicated to the Chilean people and their sufferings. Using documentary film - seen as hazy memories - and the words of the songs by Violeta Parra and the poet and songwriter Victor Jara, who was assassinated by the "junta" in 1973, the piece moves from light to darkness, from celebration to the need of courage in the face of political adversity or the threat of death.
  • Peppered with references to the body language, style and spirit of the sixties and early seventies, Rooster blazes with vitality. The infectious rhythms of some of the best-known hits of The Rolling Stones (Little Red Rooster, Ruby Tuesday, Paint it Black...) and the exhilarating choreography is bound to get the viewer to their feet.
  • Swansong is one of Bruce’s most prominent works. Acclaimed as a modern classic the ballet shows a prisoner being interrogated by two guards using a startling combination of contemporary dance, tap and music hall routines.
