In its 26th year, Liverpool-based festival LEAP takes over venues across the city, in a landmark change to how dance is programmed in the North West.

Launching October 3, LEAP will play host to WILD, a new show from dance-circus production company Motionhouse.

Over the following 10 days, LEAP will offer a platform to aspiring local dance artists as well as internationally renowned performers in a celebration of cross-artform storytelling through movement. Seke Chimutengwende and Alexandrina Hemsley’s Black Holes, Rosie Kay Dance Company’s Fantasia and Neon Dance’s Puzzle Creature are amongst the big name artists and companies confirmed to perform.
