Umanoove | The Happiness Project

Best known in the UK for her productions for Rambert and Northern Ballet (Carmen, A Street Car Named Desire), international dance artist Didy Veldman launches her own company Umanoove with The Happiness Project. 

Focusing on our society’s endless search for fulfilment, this full-length work is an intricate, physical and theatrical piece of dance. The production has been made in collaboration with celebrated violinist and composer Alexander Balanescu, who will perform live alongside the company’s four dancers.
 
Don’t miss this exciting new company performing in Leeds for the very first time.


Rosie Kay Dance Company | MK ULTRA

Enter the world of MK ULTRA; a high energy, supercharged mix of dance, music and imagery inspired by the bizarre realm of mind control conspiracies.

This is a thrilling new work by Rosie Kay, the choreographer of the hit film Sunshine on Leith, best known for the five star award-winning 5 SOLDIERS.

Renowned for athletic movement, intelligent theatricality and a fearless approach, Kay delves deep into the world of the Illuminati - a shadowy elite that are thought by some to control pop culture. Even if you already know about the Illuminati, be prepared for MK ULTRA to shatter your perceptions.


Razzamataz Theatre Schools Leeds | Beatbox to Bollywood

A Showcase Production featuring the Dance, Drama and Singing Talents of over fifty local students from The Razzamataz Theatre School in Leeds. Aged from four to sixteen, their first full-scale Public Performance ever features a wide range of genres, including hip-hop, movie favourites, popular chart music across three decades, and music and dance from Broadway and West End musicals.

Northern Ballet | Ugly Duckling

Don’t miss Northern Ballet’s hugely popular Ugly Duckling as it returns to the stage for the first time since 2013.

Ugly Duckling is lonely and fed-up, ignored by those around her who think she is too ugly to fit in. She tries to make friends with fellow ducklings as well as with frogs, cats and even a fox, but realising she is not like any of these animals, she is left sad and alone. Follow the duckling on her journey as she tries to make friends, overcome her troubles and realises that she was beautiful all along.

Retelling the famous Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, Ugly Duckling is the perfect opportunity for your little ones to enjoy live ballet, music and theatre for the first time.

As seen on CBeebies, Northern Ballet’s sell-out productions for children are not to be missed.

This child friendly performance lasts approximately 40 minutes.
