The coming week see’s two bold new premieres, a fight for the audience this coming Thursday, as two new premieres grace the theatres of Glasgow.
The big fight for audience goers this week, is between The Tramway – where Scottish born choreographer Michael Clark, is making a welcome return with a new world premiere. Over at The Theatre Royal, its Scottish Ballet, with incumbent artistic director Christopher Hampson at the helm and with big boots to fill after the sad departure of Ashley Paige.
Michael Clarke Company present a double bill, featuring collaborations with artist and filmmaker Charles Atlas, and a specially commissioned new score from Relaxed Muscle. Michael Clarke set the tempo for a revolutionary new turn in contemporary dance, shocking audiences with his bold set designs, costumes and striking choreography. Be sure to come prepared for some amazing dancers doing some pretty awesome things with the human body. Shows run Thursday 4th October – Saturday 6th with tickets at £15-£20.

Scottish Ballet bring a triple bill, a revival of the witty minded Martin Lawrence’s ‘Run For It’ choreographed for Dance GB, William Forsythe’s ‘Work Within Work’, setting the scene for what will be a challenging piece for the dancers, and finally ‘5 Tangos’ from Hans Van Manen will bring the evening to a dramatic close as the company perform it for the first time. Performances also run from Thursday 4th – Saturday 6th and come in at £18, under 26’s, student’s and unwaged can get tickets for £10. Click HERE for more information and tickets.
The coming months have some real goodies in store for theatre goers, Richard Alston Dance Company making a welcome return to The Theatre Royal 1st November, Marc Brew Company perform at The Tramway 26th & 27th October, and the wonderfully sassy Chicago the Musical performs at The Kings Theatre 19th-24th November.
Whatever you do, make sure you add some of these dates to your diary if you are in, around or passing through Glasgow soon, take your suit to the dry cleaners, and dig out those old binoculars for a prime view of the action!
