Theatre Trip - Wasteland

  • Northern Stage Barras Bridge Newcastle upon Tyne, England, NE1 United Kingdom (map)


Gary Clarke’s WASTELAND looks at how two generations coped in the 90’s, an era of radical upheaval. As we see one generation grind to a halt, we follow the next into the 90’s illegal rave scene, where derelict warehouses and abandoned work spaces became home for a new-found community of music and dance.

Bringing together Clarke’s vivid physical dance language performed by a company of exceptional dancers, a community cast of male singers, brass musicians, archive film footage, a powerful rave soundscore and unique artwork by Jimmy Cauty (co-founder of The KLF), WASTELAND dives head first into a gritty story of loss, hope, escapism and survival.

Fancy coming along to the theatre, or want to bring a group of young people? Please email or call 07984100825.
