Dance group to take to the stage at arts venue for per­for­mance of show

Evening Express (City Final) - - Uk & Abroad -

A DANCE theatre group is set to bring its suc­cess­ful show to the North-east.

Joan Cleville Dance will bring its pro­duc­tion of The North to The Barn in Ban­chory at the end of the month. Fresh off a suc­cess­ful run at the Ed­in­burgh Fringe Fes­ti­val and UK tour artis­tic di­rec­tor Joan Cleville is look­ing for­ward to bring­ing the show to the North-east. It fol­lows the story of John, a young man who finds him­self lost in the wilder­ness with two ec­cen­tric North­ern­ers for com­pany.

It features dancers from the Scot­tish School of Con­tem­po­rary Dance in Dundee.

Joan said: “The idea of the ‘North’ is dif­fer­ent for ev­ery­body, de­pend­ing on where you are ge­o­graph­i­cally, and is also per­ma­nently elu­sive, as it al­ways re­cedes as you move to­wards it.

“The North we de­scribe in the piece is a place of the imag­i­na­tion, a lim­i­nal space in be­tween places, some­where be­tween a limbo and a wait­ing room. “There is def­i­nitely a Nordic feel to it, but it’s open, des­o­late and un­pre­dictable.” The show will take place on November 24 at 7.30pm.
