Stanley & Audrey Burton Theatre – What's On

See below for events currently scheduled at Quarry Hill.

  

Company Chameleon | Witness

Visiting Leeds for the first time since 2013, Company Chameleon returns with a double bill, Witness.

The short and dynamic opening piece Words Unspoken is strikingly hypnotic, and explores the secrets of the six dancers on stage through a flawless and synchronized style.

Witness, the main piece of the double bill, portrays how loved ones cope when mental health problems take hold of someone close. A rich mix of dance styles combines to create a view of mental health that is touching, sad, funny and absurd all at the same time. This promises to be a performance that you simply won’t forget.

Sardoville | A Matter of Impression

Get ready for an explosive dance experience with Sardoville’s A Matter of Impression.

Two separate dance pieces are intertwined, as a new work by internationally acclaimed Luca Silvestrini and a reworking of Sardoville’s The Dancing Plague are blended together with choreographed set and costume changes. 
 
The company has a unique and highly physical style as “Sardovillian theatre” deconstructs the production bringing the backstage into view; no curtains, no illusion, no artifice, just performance. 

This is virtuosic dance theatre with a humorous spin on life.

Rosie Kay Dance Company | MK ULTRA

Renowned for athletic movement, intelligent theatricality and a fearless approach, Kay delves deep into the world of the Illuminati - a shadowy elite that are thought by some to control pop culture. Even if you already know about the Illuminati, be prepared for MK ULTRA to shatter your perceptions.
