News: Gary Clarke wins UK Theatre award for Coal

Tuesday 18 October 2016 by carmel smith

The UK Theatre Awards took place in London earlier this month (Sunday 9 October). Gary Clarke won the Achievement in Dance category for his production of Coal, which continues to tour the UK until December. The production marks the 30th anniversary of the end of the 1984/85 British Miners’ strike, taking a nostalgic look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face.

Other nominees in the same category were Dance Consortium for bringing back the exceptional dancers of Nederlands Dans Theater 2 for a UK tour and Northern Ballet for commissioning two striking new contemporary ballets: Jonathan Watkins’ 1984 and Cathy Marston’s Jane Eyre
