Following a sold out performance in 2016, the Gary Clarke Company returns to Cast with COAL - their ONLY Northern tour date in 2018.
Created to mark the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/5 British miners’ strike, COAL is a riveting dance theatre show which takes an nostalgic look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face.
Strong, powerful and emotive, COAL explores the darker underbelly of the mining industry unearthing the true nature and body wrecking demands of a working class industry now almost forgotten.
Bringing together Clarke’s striking physical language performed by a company of 7 stunning professional dancers, a local community cast of women and a live brass band, COAL is an emotional, moving and ever-relevant exploration of community, solidarity and survival.
