A unique performance celebrating unity, support and friendship will be showcased for the first time as part of an evening of dance at Hull New Theatre.

In This Place is choreographed by Hull Dance Prize winner Carla Morrill and will be performed by Hull Dance Youth Company during the festival of movement on February 2.

Set in in a dystopian world it will explore how we can find happiness ourselves and in each other in a better, brighter place through the medium of dance. 

Ruth Drake, Hull City Council’s Arts Development Officer, said: “The young people involved all enjoy dancing and are at different stages in their dance journey.  By taking part in Creative Voice Dance they are sharing and showcasing that the future of dance in our city and region is very promising as well as supporting their own individual development and progression.”

The next generation of performers and choreographers from across Hull and the East Riding will also display their talents in this night of entertainment featuring contemporary, street, Irish, and Indian classical dance.

Other performers on the night include Mckeown Irish Dance Academy, Pragnya Indian Arts Centre, East Riding County Company, Route One Youth Centre, Wilberforce College, Space Dance Studio and Eva Maria Kuriakose.

Also performing on the night will be Luke Rogerson from Space Dance Studio, who after performing at Creative Voice Dance in 2017 was picked to be part of a Tin Arts Dance Company project called Talent Hub. Talent Hub is an innovative professional development programme for artists with learning difficulties or autism based in Yorkshire and the North East.
