AN ENERGETIC AND EXCITING DOUBLE BILL OF DANCE FOR CHILDREN AND FAMILIES AGED 7+
Devised and Choreographed by Tamsin Fitzgerald
The Rock is a coming of age story about a group of mischievous and adventurous children who hang out at a dark, eerie clearing called The Rock on the edge of town. The discovery of a mysterious map leads to a strange and thrilling encounter that will change their lives forever.
Combining a range of contemporary dance styles with high octane acrobatics, and a sweeping soundtrack by James Baranowski (recently worked with Danny Boyle and The xx), The Rock is an exciting dance performance full of adventure, magic and exhilarating escapades.
Tamsin Fitzgerald is the founder of the all male 2Faced Dance Company. Tamsin’s critically acclaimed work for 2Faced has included 7.0, Still Breathing and State of Matter. She was awarded a prestigious Rayne Fellowship for her choreography, which has led her to work alongside Australian Dance Theatre, The Ballet Boyz, and the Birmingham Rep.

THE SUITCASE STORY
Devised and Choreographed by Christopher Marney
A poignant and uplifting dance show about a little girl and her magical, travelling suitcase.
Lonely and finding herself caught in the middle of her parents’ differences, a little girl seeks comfort in a dream world. From inside her charmed suitcase she conjures up an imaginary friend that no one but her can see. Brimming with humour and tenderness, The Suitcase Story is a sensitive and heart-warming tale.
Christopher Marney has choreographed and performed in an exceptional range of critically acclaimed productions from Matthew Bourne’s New Adventures (Swan Lake) to creating work for ballet companies and London’s West End.
