Winston Smith lives in a world of absolute conformity, his every action is scrutinized by Big Brother. However, when Winston meets Julia he dares to rebel by falling in love.

Based on George Orwell's masterpiece and created by Guest Choreographer and former Royal Ballet dancer Jonathan Watkins, 1984 will change the way you think about ballet.

The brand new score from Tony-nominated Composer Alex Baranowski, who has recently worked with award-winning band The xx, is played live by Northern Ballet Sinfonia.

Pushing the boundaries of contemporary ballet, 1984 won the dance award at the South Bank Sky Arts Awards in June 2016.

Northern Ballet’s critically acclaimed 1984 has been released on DVD. The ballet was filmed during live performances at Manchester’s Palace Theatre during the first leg of its World Première Tour in 2015.
