Marking the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/5 British miners' strike, award winning choreographer Gary Clarke proudly presents COAL, 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 high class dancers, a local community cast of women and a live colliery brass band, COAL is an emotional, moving and ever-relevant exploration of community, solidarity and survival.
