SHOW INFORMATION PRICING

In 1994 hundreds of coal miners hung up their pit boots as Grimethorpe Colliery was destroyed, along with the tight-knit working-class community that surrounded it. Wasteland, Gary Clarke’s sequel to COAL – winner of UK Theatre and National critics awards, looks at how two generations coped in this era of radical upheaval. As we see one generation grind to a halt, we follow the next into the 90s illegal rave scene, where derelict warehouses and abandoned work spaces became home for a new-found community of music and dance.

“Blisteringly fierce” ★★★★ The Herald

“Poignant and thrilling” ★★★★ The Skinny

“Brilliant” ★★★★★ The Herald on Sunday

Bringing together Clarke’s vivid physical dance language performed by a company of exceptional dancers, a community cast of singers, brass musicians, archive film footage, a powerful rave soundtrack and unique artwork by Jimmy Cauty (co-founder of The KLF), Wasteland dives head first into a gritty story of loss, hope, escapism and survival.

Wasteland is a truly wonderful piece of dance-theatre: humane, politically charged, by turns funny and sad. ★★★★★ The Stage

An ambitious, carefully crafted, visceral dance-theatre treatment of a crucial time in the history of modern Britain, that more than justifies its belief in dance as a vehicle for ideas and social commentary. ★★★★ Culture Whisper
