Due to the current lockdown, our education work is on hold. We look forward to working with communities in the future and will update you here when we are able to share any news.
To support the national tour of Gary Clarke’s highly anticipated new dance theatre show Wasteland, Gary Clarke Company will deliver a range of education packages for people of all ages and experience.
Workshop and Show package
The Wasteland workshop and Show deal is available to schools, colleges, universities and community groups. As part of this exciting integrated package, participants (aged 14+) will take part in an individually tailored 3 hour movement and creative workshop, watch a live performance of Wasteland, be invited to give a critical response as part of an engaging post show discussion and meet choreographer Gary Clarke and company members after the performance.
This unique offer will also provide participants and gatekeepers with an insight into the decline of the British coal mining industry and the birth of rave sub-culture in the UK as well as a rare opportunity to see a new live theatre production and a platform to voice opinions and responses to Wasteland, as audiences.
