Retina Dance Company has been gearing up for the UK premiere of their latest work Corporalis, which took place tonight (19 February) at Nottingham Playhouse, with further tour dates to be confirmed. A work exploring architecture and dance, Corporalis uses Retina's signature physical and dynamic choreographic style, and reminding us why they're that cut above other dance companies.

At the end of last week, they put out a call on Twitter and Facebook for photographers to shoot their rehearsal the day before their premiere; seeing as I was in Cheltenham at the time (for a dance photography workshop, no less), it made perfect sense to travel to Nottingham to photograph them in rehearsal. The photos below are from excerpts of the work, as captured during their rehearsal.

The next performance of Corporalis will be at Déda in Derby on 19 April; for tickets and information, please visit
