Northumberland dance company Meta4 Dance return home for the second live stream performance of their three-part Arts Council funded project Natural Theatres, a project that looks to utilise non-traditional performance venues, whilst increasing accessibility for audiences of art. 

On Friday 9th April, Pelican Theatre will be following up their recent performance at the Newcastle Castle Keep with Pelican Theatre performing two excerpts; A Bitter Pill and Aliveness, which take place in Northumberland. This, as Meta4’s Co-creator and Artistic Director, Lily Horgan points out, has been something that she has been excited to see develop, “During lockdown, our outside environment has become essential for mental & physical health. We want  to suggest a new way to experience live performance, that reimagines the feeling of seeing it in person. It’s important  that people who aren’t comfortable going back to theatres yet, are able to view a professional live performance from the comfort of their own home.” 

Charlie Dunne, Managing Director of Meta4 spoke of the pair’s passion for the local area; “Northumberland is such a  unique place and by combining the power of movement and the beauty of nature, we believe that local communities  can be part of this journey with us, exploring these spaces from a new perspective.” 

Tickets for the event are charged at a ‘pay what you feel’ rate and more information about the performances and  Meta4’s ongoing work in the region can be found by visiting their website.
