Created to mark the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/5 British miners’ strike, award winning choreographer Gary Clarke proudly presents COAL, a riveting dance theatre show which takes an nostalgic look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face.
Bringing together Clarke’s striking physical language performed by a company of 7 stunning professional dancers and a live brass band, COAL is a nostalgic, moving and ever-relevant exploration of community, solidarity and survival.
