The group of 10 dancers from The Central School of Ballet showcased Tilt, created by renowned choreographer and dancer Marc Brew and commissioned specially for the festival.

The 15-minute piece, performed twice yesterday, explores conflict and resolution within the ever-changing city landscape, drawing on moments shared between people in a dynamic clash of tango music, dance and the outdoors.

The dancers, all under the age of 18, performed in contemporary costumes of shirts with bow ties and karate shoes.
