Choreographer Gary Clarke requires a highly skilled male dancer to join Gary Clarke Company for the Spring 2018 tour of the critically acclaimed mid-scale dance theatre production COAL
Winner of a UK Theatre Award and a Critics Circle National Dance Award, COAL is a riveting piece of dance theatre which takes a nostalgic look at the hard-hitting realities of life at the coal face. Described by The Times as 'Outstanding,' the production involves a company of professional dancers, live brass bands, community participants and a strong design and production team.
