To support the national tour of Gary Clarke’s award winning dance theatre production COAL, members of Gary Clarke Company will deliver workshops to schools, colleges and universities as part of an exciting integrated student and teacher package.

As part of the package, students will take part in an individually tailored 3 hour dance workshop, watch a live performance of COAL and be invited to give a critical response to choreographer Gary Clarke as part of a unique post show discussion.

These unique workshop packages provide students and teachers with an insight into the history of the British coal mining industry, an opportunity to see a new live production and a platform for young people to voice their opinions and responses to a live dance theatre work.

Due to the mature subject matter of COAL, the age guidance for the workshop package is 12+. This activity is tailored to fit groups studying dance and drama from schools and youth companies with little or no dance experience and younger school groups from Year 8 and Year 9 as well as more experienced dance / theatre / performing arts college groups and university degree students.
