About Coal

Marking the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/85 British Miners’ strike, award winning choreographer Gary Clarke proudly presents COAL, a riveting dance theatre show which takes a nostalgic look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face.

Strong, powerful and emotive it explores the darker underbelly of the mining industry, unearthing the true nature and body wrecking demands of a working class industry now almost forgotten.

BE PART OF THE CAST

We’re looking for four women aged 30+ with no professional performance experience to join Gary
and the company for our performances of this show. The roles involve some physical work, but individual needs and abilities will be taken into account. Interested? Contact: engagementcoal@gmail.com

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Coal are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
