Northern Ballet brings dance history to the heart of Yorkshire as we perform a tribute to internationally celebrated choreographer Sir Kenneth MacMillan, to coincide with the 25th Anniversary of his death. The Company's world-class dancers will showcase their exceptional abilities as they perform pieces by one of the art form's most influential and respected choreographers. Las Hermanas is a tense psychological drama about five sisters and the consequences that follow a life of harsh repression, Gloria is inspired by Vera Brittain's wartime memoir Testament of Youth; and Concerto is a dazzling classical piece set to music by Shostakovich. The chance to see such works performed outside of the Capital is a rare one. Experience the unmissable with Northern Ballet.

Audiences will also be treated to performances of Calyx, a new commission by emerging choreographer Sandrine Monin that explores the themes of beauty, desire and decadence; and a revival of Shadows by Christopher Bruce, now featured in the AQA GCSE dance curriculum.

Throughout Pauline's life, people have made assumptions about her based on her gender, background and race. She's defied these expectations at every turn, tearing up the narrative that society tried to impose on her. Now, Pauline is finally ready to tell the world her story. Carefully balancing dance and theatre, What If I Told You immerses us in Pauline's world as she invites us to pause, breathe and reconsider the stories we tell about our past and the history on which we build our futures.
