DOVES State of Grace
@ Queen’s Hall Arts Centre, HexhamBook Now
04 March 2020
Part road movie, part 80s noir, DOVES is a new dance-theatre work for ages 14 years+ that charts the rite of passage of two very different young women from the Deep South of the US.
Set against a filmic cyclorama and wrapped in a unique, musical soundscape the two sisters (Cora-Jay Williams and Alice Henry) fight for survival and an understanding of who they really are.
“State of Grace has a unique approach to dance theatre; their work is always fascinating and involving and Doves is no exception. See it if you can!” British Theatre Guide
Commissioned by Dance City, DOVES will be presented along with a new work in partnership with Youth Dance Tynedale.
