Available through the Lawrence Batley Theatre’s website this triple bill combines the talents of three great contemporary dance companies and was filmed in the empty theatre treating it as a site specific setting. Jordan James Bridge’s Locked Down, produced by Studio Wayne McGregor, explores what happens to a dance artist when confined in a tiny space for four months. In Locked In, Northern Ballet’s Daniel de Andrade looks at solitude and isolation, while the third piece, But Living, sees choreographer Gary Clarke revisiting a 1903 film of Alice in Wonderland and presenting an Alice lost in the labyrinth of the corridors and spaces of the theatre.
Featuring choreography by Jordan James Bridge (dancer, Studio Wayne McGregor), Daniel de Andrade (Artistic Associate, Northern Ballet) and Gary Clarke (Artistic Director, Gary Clarke Company) the three, new works will explore the theme of isolation caused by the international Coronavirus lockdown. This thrilling, triple bill will see spaces in the Lawrence Batley Theatre come alive like they never have before! The works will be performed in the empty Lawrence Batley Theatre, recorded and screened to ticket holders on their preferred date.
