Following Government restrictions on public events and current lock down, in order to contain the continued spread of COVID-19, Gary Clarke Company regrets that the Spring Tour of Wasteland 2020 had to be cut short. We are working hard with our partners in the industry to reschedule dates and will post further news when we have it.
You can read our full statement here.
In the meantime, Gary Clarke Company launched GCC Digital in May 2020, a 5-week digital programme of online classes and activity. Although our regular live sessions are finished for now, you will be able to catch up on the GCC digital activity on our IGTV channel. Over the next few weeks we will be looking back at the Wasteland tour as the Gary Clarke Company dancers reflect on their best memories. Find out more in our timetable and keep an eye on our social media platforms for all the latest details.
Created to mark the 25th anniversary since the demolition of Grimethorpe Colliery and 30 years since the rise of UK rave culture, WASTELAND is the highly anticipated new dance theatre show from acclaimed British choreographer Gary Clarke and the sequel to his multi award winning production COAL.
"Its stunning combination of movement, music and imagery makes for an unforgettable work of angry, emotional, celebratory, political dance."
“The production firmly roots the upsurge of euphoria in its socio-political and historical context.”
