Eliot Smith Dance celebrate a full return to live performances this month by touring LIFE, a four-part contemporary show with an emphasis on increasing awareness surrounding the ongoing global climate crisis, at venues across the region.

Centred around an eponymous key piece, created by ESD’s creative director Eliot Smith himself, the show will also feature original music by award-winning composer Adam Johnson, and stunning backdrops from renowned artist Bernadette Koranteng.

Further performances include works by award-winning guest choreographers Martin Hylton and Balbir Singh, as well as ESD Rehearsal Director, Yamit Salazar.

Speaking of the forthcoming show, Smith says: “I have never been more convinced that the powerful sense of movement that identifies this season’s performances will help our audiences make a more conscious connection to nature and the climate crisis, and that the dancers will draw inspiration from the personal and emotional connection that results from being in the physical presence of a live audience.”

LIFE will be performed at Hexham’s Queen’s Hall on Thursday 23rd June, with further shows at The Maltings in Berwick on Friday 24th June, The Bowes Museum on Wednesday 29th June, and Gosforth Civic Theatre on Saturday 7th July.
