NATIONAL DANCE COMPANY WALES: Watch Dance Class

Friday 20 April from 12.45pm – 2pm

The event is free but customers must book a ticket

 

Watch Dance Class is a free to attend event which aims to build audiences and boost engagement with previously unengaged groups as well as helping to demystify the idea of dance to audiences that may find it abit of an unknown.

 

Every day before a performance, our dancers warm up onstage, this is standard to all venues and important for the dancers health and wellbeing. At Watch Dance Class, we simply open the doors to the stage during this time. At first it was of interest to dance students interested in seeing what it’s like to be professional day to day; but we noticed a huge interest from photographers and life drawers; and now target at these groups.

National Dance Company Wales: TERRA FIRMA

Friday 20 April at 7.30pm

Tickets - £14, concessions - £12, groups of 10+ - £10

Running time approximately 2 hours, 25 minutes

Choreography by Caroline Finn, Marcos Morau and Mario Bermudez Gil

Terra Firma tells stories drawn from the very ground on which we build our communities; 

FOLKIS a vintage fairy-tale, set in a rich fantastical world under the boughs of an upside-down tree, as darkly whimsical as it is enchanting. 

TUNDRA is a barren landscape where ultra-modern creativity blinks into life and tears pages from Russian folk dance and revolution. 

ATALAY is a watch tower from which far off lands can be seen from four points; a contagious dance influenced by the warmth of the Mediterranean.

CHAT BACK - Do you ever leave the theatre with burning questions, brimming ideas or musings on what you have just seen? National Dance Company Wales invite you to share your thoughts after the show in a relaxed discussion and Q&A with artistic staff and dancers.

LOUDER IS NOT ALWAYS CLEARER (Ages 14+)

A Mr and Mrs Clark Production

Thursday 26 & Friday 27 April at 7.45pm

Tickets - £10, concessions - £8
Approximate running time 1 hour, late comers may not be admitted

Jonny is a teacher, a workshop leader and an avid football fan. He’s just become a father. His friends say that he’s outgoing and that he loves music, festivals and nightclubs. Jonny is deaf. He was born deaf to hearing parents who were afraid that disability would stigmatise their son and the family.

'Louder Is Not Always Clearer' is an honest portrayal of the vulnerability of a deaf man. For a hearing audience it is an illuminating and emotional experience. For deaf audience members the show is a familiar tale of misunderstanding and isolation. For all audiences it is a humorous and at times moving story of one man’s attempt to cope, to fit in and be accepted.

Mr and Mrs Clark make new and innovative performances that engage audiences.  The Clarks were short-listed for the Amnesty International Freedom of Speech Award in 2015 and presented (F.E.A.R.) as part of Wales In Edinburgh this year.

THE KING OF POP - THE LEGEND CONTINUES... STARRING NAVI

Friday 27 April at 7.30pm

Tickets - £20, children - £14

 

Get ready to moonwalk the night away at a show whose star performer ‘Navi’ once earned a standing ovation from Michael Jackson himself.

 

King Of Pop – The Legend Continues is currently on tour in the UK and is taking British theatres by storm. The superb production stars the world’s No.1 MJ impersonator ‘Navi’ who was actually invited to perform at two of Michael Jackson’s birthday parties in LA and New York. Michael not only applauded Navi but also gave him a standing ovation and invited the impersonator to spend a day at his home ‘Neverland’. The pair remained close and due to Navi’s uncanny resemblance to the star, he was often hired by Michael to act as a decoy to distract mobs of fans and press.

 

Navi has since continued to work at the highest level performing in a whopping 57 different countries and is now back in the UK for a national theatre tour along with his incredible live band and dancers. Navi brilliantly recreates all the magical classics from the early Jackson 5 songs to mega-hits such as Thriller and Smooth Criminal in a show the whole family will enjoy.

From the creators of Jane Eyre: An Autobiography, Dalloway and Female Gothic

2018: In this age of uncertainty, where the shadows of tyranny, intolerance and war darken the path into tomorrow, how much time do we have left?  If civilisation falls today, what will become of us? 

Rebecca Vaughan presents Elton Townend Jones’ radical new interpretation of the HG Wells classic, in which a Victorian time traveller transcends across the ages from 1900 to our own far future – from the fall of man to the end of the world.

Can we change the future?  Or has the end already begun?

THE BLUES BAND 2018

Saturday 2 June at 7.30pm

Tickets - £24

The Blues Band: 39 Years and Counting!

Formed in 1979 by five seasoned musicians, The Blues Band are celebrating 39 glorious years as Britain and Europe’s leading exponents of one of the greatest musical traditions of all time.

It began back then with a phonecall by Paul Jones, actor, singer, musician and radio presenter, no stranger to the pop charts throughout the 1960s as front man for the hugely successful Manfred Mann. His fellow Manfred Tom McGuinness shared the same love of the music - he’d started out with Eric Clapton in the Roosters. And they knew the right people to make their idea for a band ‘just to play the blues’ work; they brought in legendary slide guitar man and singer Dave Kelly, who brought along a talented fellow musician, bassist Gary Fletcher. With the addition of Tom’s chart-topping partner from McGuinness Flint, drummer Hughie Flint, (ex-John Mayall’s Blues Breakers), that first line-up stormed the post-punk music scene, and contrary to their expectations, they soon left the pub scene behind for an international career playing the music they loved. After two and a half years, Hughie Flint left due to the pressures of touring. His place was admirably filled by another fine drummer, Rob Townsend, a member of one of Britain’s most eclectic, legendary outfits, Family.

The rest, as the saying goes, is history.

Other blues groups come and go, but it takes something special to achieve the iconic prestige enjoyed by The Blues Band. If you want to know what 38 years of skill and devotion sound like, here’s your chance - if you love the blues, it doesn’t get any better than The Blues Band.

As well as campaigning tirelesslyfor women’s suffrage, she became the lightning rod for women’s efforts duringWW1, survived the sinking of the Lusitania and created the radical feministmagazine Time and Tide.  Her indefatigable efforts and endeavourswere finally rewarded when, in 1918, women over the age of thirty were enfranchised.

This thigh-slapping romp through the world of suffrageand song is told through the lens of music-hall and fittingly sports anall-female cast and creative team.  Theaudience will be guided through the story by our very own Emcee (LesleyGarrett) following the escapades of Lady Rhondda (Madeleine Shaw) and her bravebattalion of suffragettes as they fearlessly takes on Peers, politicians andpost-boxes in their struggle for women’s rights.

WNO will showcase this woman’s fight for liberty,survival and equality in a number of ways: from community events, talks andschools workshops to exhibitions, interactive digital experiences as well asthe production itself.

***JOHN COOPER CLARKE POSTPONED****
Unfortunately due to the adverse weather conditions, tomorrow's John Cooper Clarke show will be postponed. It will no longer be going ahead on Friday 2 March and has been rescheduled to happen on Thursday 29 March 2018. Our box office staff will be in touch soon - if you are able to attend the new date your current tickets are still valid but if you cannot make it you are entitled to a full refund. Thank you for your patience.

John Cooper Clarke shot to prominence in the 1970s as the original ‘people’s poet’. Since then his career has spanned cultures, audiences, art forms and continents. Today, JCC is as relevant and vibrant as ever, and his influence just as visible on today’s pop culture. Aside from his trademark ‘look’ continuing to resonate with fashionistas young and old, and his poetry included on national curriculum syllabus, his effect on modern music is huge. 

His influence can be heard within the keen social observations of the Arctic Monkeys and Plan B. These collaborations mean that John has been involved in 2 recent global number 1 albums - with The Arctic Monkeys putting one of John's best loved poems, I Wanna Be Yours, to music on their critically acclaimed A:M Album 

This latest show is a mix of classic verse, extraordinary new material, hilarious ponderings on modern life, good honest gags, riffs and chat - a chance to witness a living legend at the top of this game.

Clare Ferguson-Walker - 7:45pm - 8:15pm

SUN RECORDS: Where Rock'n'Roll Was Born - the Official Sun Records Concert Show

 

The legendary record label that brought you Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Rufus Thomas and scores more rockin' pioneers, comes to life, live on stage.

Re-visit the blessed recording studio where the distinctive sound we know and love today was crafted from gospel, blues, hill billy, country, boogie and western swing by musical visionary Sam Phillips.

His trailblazing Memphis studio brought us That's Alright Mama, Great Balls of Fire, I Walk the Line, Whole Lotta Shakin', Bear Cat, Blue Suede Shoes, Good Rockin’ Tonight. . . hundreds of hits that would influence the world of music for generations to come.

Sam Phillips was a patient, honest man and a perpetual optimist. In 1954 he combined a modest 19-year-old Elvis Presley with musicians Scotty Moore, Bill Black and then DJ Fontana to create music that infused country and r'n'b.

It transcended musical and racial barriers. The ‘Sun Sound’ was born.

Rehearsed in an exact replica of the Sun Studios, featuring the musical instruments of the era, starring a multi-talented cast of singers and a supporting cast of amazing musicians, the sound of Sun is brought to life live on stage in the official concert show that takes you back to the birth place of rock'n'roll.
