Dance celebration of working class, ship building industries
A powerful dance performance that celebrates the North East in all its industrial glory. Using the paintings of renowned Scottish born, North East based artist Alexander Millar, Kristin Kelly Abbott crafts iconic images that bring Millar’s characters to life on stage.
Those who built the ships are portrayed not only at work but during their social time – in the pubs and at the football. These people were an integral part in the economic boom time of the North East.
Using stunning projections of Millar’s paintings and physical and energetic choreography, the work is evocative and contemporary. It will delight anyone who has a love for great dancing and passion for the industrial history of the region. Kristin Kelly Abbott lives and works in the North East and this is her first full length production.
