Shhh! (C-12 Dance Theatre)

Books flying overhead, free-running on moving shelves and falling in love – all this in a library?

Date: Friday 11 April
Venue: Assembly Room
Time: 7:30pm
Tickets: £12 / £10 (Full price/Concessions)

This exciting and explosive new show is an entertaining dance story of a library closed down; although, if the community came together, could they save it?

Creating an innovative and powerful piece of dance theatre, five theatrical performers manipulate the set and surroundings cleverly dramatizing the emotion contained within several classic books, including Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet.

The set is mostly recycled from the New Barnfield Library, Hatfield Hertfordshire, which sadly closed down in 2012 – but Shhh! brings it gloriously back to life.

Recommended for ages 3+

Choreographed by Artistic Director of C-12 Dance Theatre, Annie-Lunnette Deakin-Foster; original, specially commissioned music composed and produced by award winning film and TV composer, Jamie Salisbury; projection and lighting design, Arnim Friss for Pixelbox. Shhh! is produced by C-12 Dance Theatre, ARC, Stockton, Hawthorne Theatre, funded by Arts Council, Hawthorne Theatre, ARC, Stockton and C-12 Dance Theatre, with additional support from The Albany and Dance Digital.

‘C12 is a company to watch not just for dancing but for interesting, emotive and powerful theatre.’

Entry Price: £ 12.00
