To support the national tour of Gary Clarke‘s highly anticipated new dance theatre show WASTELAND, Dance4 and Gary Clarke Company invite young people aged between 14-19 to take part in a movement and creative dance workshop exploring themes from the show. The Workshop is led by professional dancer Rob Anderson the touring Company. Participants will have the opportunity to learn repertoire from the show, create work using physical exploration and have an insight into Gary Clarke’s choreography.
Wasteland explores the decline of the British coal mining industry and the birth of rave sub-culture in the UK. It brings together Clarke’s blistering physical dance language performed by a company of exceptional dancers, a community cast of male singers, brass musicians, archive film footage, a powerful rave sound score and unique artwork by Jimmy Cauty (Co-founder of The KLF), Wasteland dives headfirst into a hedonistic story of loss, hope, escapism and survival.
As part of the workshop ticket price, participants will also receive a ticket to see WASTELAND at Nottingham Playhouse on Friday 25 or Saturday 26 October, with an offer available for an additional ticket.
Advanced booking essential.
Suitable for those aged between 14-19
