Miles Ahead: Body Of People (BOP)
A riveting evening of jazz theatre in two acts: Footprints in Jazz and Touches of Miles. Introducing new works of jazz dance and new musical jazz scores, BOP convey the spirit and vitality that lies at the very heart of the jazz idiom.
Programme One: Footprints in Jazz is a suite of concert jazz dance pieces that captures the individual and collective creative expression of the BOP Company. Step by step, the BOP dancers share their unique energy set against original Jazz compositions and arrangements by Paul Jenkins.
Programme Two: Touches of Miles pays homage to the life and music of jazz trumpeter and composer Miles Davis. In this original jazz theatre creation a selection of Miles' classic compositions are performed live by the BOP Jazz Ensemble who provide a riveting musical backdrop for enthralling jazz dance and storytelling.
Body Of People, aka BOP, is one of the UK's most exciting and innovative jazz theatre companies.
'BOP is the artistic realisation of international director, choreographer and performer, Dollie Henry and music producer, composer and jazz trumpeter, Paul Jenkins. Together they have created a unique British jazz dance, music and theatre production company. As jazz practitioners and creative artists, they forge ahead continuing to develop and instigate their own unique style and artistic expression inspired by the aesthetic roots that stem from the jazz idiom.
BOP are the forerunners for new and ingenious jazz theatre and continue to share their philosophy and creativity of artistic jazz both here in the UK and internationally.'
