What songs may do… is the highly anticipated first full-evening production by award-winning choreographer and former National Dance Company Wales dancer: Mathieu Geffré. This duet tells the story of a gay couple attending the concert Nina Simone gave at the Montreux Jazz Festival in 1976. This is an invitation to experience Simone’s concert through the dancers emotional and physical journey amongst a cast of 15 local community members. Poetic, passionate, physical and emotional, What songs may do… is an inclusive dance piece that celebrates love in all its diversity.


This season we are presenting SIX full length performances Made In the North East (MINE) with support from Dance City. This is the biggest season of MINE works we’ve ever presented and we think it’s worth celebrating with this fantastic offer. When you book all six MINE shows the bundle price is £39, saving up to £26 on the full price tickets. If you can’t make any of the performances, pay it forward by returning that ticket and we’ll offer it for free to a Dance City Training Academy student.
