Gary Clarke Company presents


Created to mark the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/85 British Miner's strike, award-winning choreographer Gary Clarke proudly presents COAL, a powerful and emotional dance theatre show about life at the coal face. It brings together Clarke's striking physical language performed by 7 professional dancers, a local cast of women and a live brass band, in a story about community, solidarity and survival.

“Outstanding” **** The Times

"Visceral piece of physical theatre recalling the shattering impact of the pit closures in the 1980s" **** The Stage

“A profound and highly relevant contribution to remembering this painful, life changing period in our history.” ***** The Big Issue

“Sense of startling authenticity that Clarke has managed to capture in Coal”
**** DanceTabs

“Unquestionably beautiful.” British Theatre Guide
