3. Book to see Awakening at the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Theatre (Friday 8 – Saturday 9 March 2019) #rohawakening #London #Arts #Theatre #Travel #Entertainment
This March, National Dance Company Wales present their new tour Awakening in London, at the Royal Opera House’s Linbury Theatre. Visiting 11 venues across the UK, the Awakening tour continues the company’s commitment to making engaging and innovative dance with and for all kinds of people in all kinds of places.
Performed in London on Friday 8 and Saturday 9 March, the programme consists of three dance pieces. Tundra, which tears pages from the Russian history books on folk dance, mass parades and revolution, a piece which is as mesmerizingly beautiful as it is robotically precise. The production was nominated for Best Achievement in Dance UK Theatre Awards 2018. Afterimage, by Brazilian choreographer Fernando Melo, is a journey of fleeting images, of appearance and disappearance and features mirrors on stage, creating a unique theatrical experience where the past and present collide with a poetic and creative style of dance. Finally, Revellers’ Mass, created by NDCWales’ Resident Choreographer Caroline Finn, explores the world of ritual and focuses on a gathering at a dinner party, where social etiquette is put to the test.
Alongside Awakening, National Dance Company Wales also present Discover Dance, participatory events for families and schools which include an opportunity to try dance with some of the company before a performance.
