COAL; the dance theatre show that takes a nostalgic look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face, returns to CAST in Doncaster for a final performance on Wednesday 14th February.
To accompany this performance, we will be hosting a free community roadshow at Weston Park Museum, Sheffield on Saturday 10th February, 11am – 12.30pm. This event will provide an exclusive opportunity to meet Gary and hear about the personal process he went through when making the show. This event offers a unique chance to hear more about the personal experience of those involved in the South Yorkshire miners’ strikes and to learn about Gary’s quest to ensure these stories remain present and important.
COAL is based on years of personal research by award-winning choreographer Gary Clarke, including interviews with Anne Scargill, former wife of NUM president Arthur Scargill, and Betty Cook, the founders of Women Against Pit Closures.
COAL continues to thrive because of the emphasis it places on community and shared experience and as such we’d love to be joined by members of the Orgreave Truth and Justice Campaign, their friends and families at this event.
All those in attendance will be offered discounted tickets (subject to availability) to see COAL at CAST.
Anyone interested in coming along should get in touch on 07391 621966 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
