Curtain Raiser: Using a vivid combination of daring physicality, gesture and spoken word, Edge FWD, an all male contemporary dance company of Edge Hill University students, perform A Beautiful Hell.  Choreographed by award-winning Gary Clarke, this intricate landscape of dreams and desires explores the notion of exclusion and what it is like to be an outsider.
