"POPPY is a retrospective and abstract look at war and conflict and the sacrifices made by those affected. The dance captures the spirit, using contemporary and athletic movement and set to a specially commissioned score by American trombonist and composer Jason Holcomb. POPPY is in collaboration with The Royal British Legion."
