Medusa Joshua Smith, Kieran Graham by Tristram Kenton

It’s not every day we host a world premiere!

Next week the University will host a world premiere.

A brand new work by internationally renowned choreographer Jasmin Vardimon will be performed first at Gulbenkian, before embarking on a national (and eventually international) tour. There are still tickets available for performances on Thurs 13, Fri 14 and Sat 15 Sep – tickets from or call 01227 769075.

See Medusa for free!

If you are not traditionally a dance fan but interested in finding out more, Gulbenkian are offering you the chance to see Medusa for free. We have ten spaces left in our Introducing Medusa group, which you can join by emailing

The group will meet twice:

Thursday 6 September, 19.00 – to meet the Jasmin Vardimon team, and discuss Medusa over a drink.

Friday 14 September, 19.30 – free ticket to watch the performance, followed by a chance to meet and chat with the dancers in a special Q&A after the show.

You need to be able to attend both dates and not be a regular dance attender.
