11 Million Reasons to Dance accompanies the exhibition of the same name and is a special commission for Coventry, as part of People Dancing's national programme to positively profile Deaf and disabled people who dance. In Coventry, presented by Coventry Performing Arts in partnership Coventry's Belgrade Theatre, local Dance Artists Alexis Haines and Stephanie Sandy have been working with a number of schools including: Baginton Fields School, Castle Wood school, Tiverton school, Sherbourne Fields School, and Corley centre, to create new dance performance work to be showcased alongside a duet by Kate Marsh & Welly O'Brien, who, as dancers with missing limbs, are both interested in the specificity of their own physicality and how this informs and enriches their collaborative practice and performance.
The Infernal Galop - A French dance with English subtitles - This is France as seen by the uptight English imagination, with all the traditional clich?s joyously paraded for our entertainment and climaxing in Offenbach's inevitable Can-Can! Town and Country - Lie back and think of England.. Moving and hilarious, this heartfelt pastiche explores notions of national character from a bygone era through the evocative music of Edward Elgar, Noel Coward and Percy Grainger, amongst others. Spitfire - An advertisement divertissement: A celebration of male vanity and an affectionate comment on the preening grandeur of the danseur noble, it places Perrot's Pas De Quatre (originally made as a kind of 'diva-off' for the four leading ballerina's of the 19th Century) in the world of men's mail order underwear advertising. Watch with Mother - Seen but not heard? - Conkers, Hopscotch, Doctors & Nurses; Children's games can be all-consuming, competitive and sometimes cruel. Based on Joyce Grenfell's famous "Nursery School" sketches ("George... Don't do that") and set to Percy Grainger's own piano compositions and arrangements of Bach and Faure, this 1991 piece has not been seen for nearly 25 years.
After the enormous success of Dance for Life 2016, Peter Kay returns with his remarkable dance-a-thon party with all profits going to Cancer Research UK.
StompP finds beauty and music in the mundane - from boots and bins to zippo lighters and plumber's plungers - everything including the kitchen sink becomes part of this production as a cast of 8 performers make instruments out of brooms and turn hand-clapping into conversation. With energy and toe-tapping exuberance, Stomp takes the clutter and junk of everyday life and transforms it into a theatrical event.
Now entering its 23rd year, this smash hit show has entertained over 15 million people world wide and for one week only Newcastle audiences have the chance to experience the magic of the one and only STOMP.
