During an Aldeburgh Residency in May 2017, the 12 ensemble spent a week working intensively on a new collaboration with acclaimed contemporary dance choreographer Alexander Whitley (Royal Ballet, Rambert) and dancer Luke Crook. The ensemble commissioned a new work for solo male dancer to accompany John Woolrich's Ulysses Awakes and gave the first performance at Snape Malting's Britten Studio on 20th May. A short film of the dance work was made on the Suffolk coast and will be released in early 2019.
