Gary Clarke Company presents COAL

Marking the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/85 British Miners’ strike, award-winning choreographer Gary Clarke proudly presents COAL, a powerful and emotional dance theatre show about life at the coal face. It brings together Clarke’s striking physical language performed by 7 professional dancers, a local cast of women and a quintet from the band, in a story about community, solidarity and survival. “An absorbing, immediate slice of history rendered with the kind of emotional truth that deepens its impact as popular entertainment.” **** The Times.
