WELCOME We have a wonderful packed season of performances here at The Garage in the new year. From the 5 star Feed by Theatre Témoin (p.7), to a new play by The Whiting’s on the Wall called There’s No Place Like Cromer (p.8), this play came through our Scratch Night process. If you're an artist interested in developing work, the next Scratch Night is on Friday 21 February (p.5). We see the return of The Canada Boys by fEAST theatre (p.10); which went down a storm when it was here last time. I’m pleased to welcome back the brilliantly funny, award-winning comedian John Kearns with Double Take and Fade Away (p.8). I am so pleased that we’ll see our participants out and about performing, with our young musicians performing at The Waterfront on Sunday 22 March (p.11) and the young dancers at Epic Studios on Sunday 29 March (p.12); it's really beneficial for them to gain new skills working in new spaces. If you’re looking to start something new in 2020 we have termly classes and drop in sessions, from ballet to Cardio Funk, there’s something fun to take part in; our term kicks off on Monday 6 January (p.22).

SUNDAY 23 FEBRUARY 2.30PM Chloe lives in a world with only one colour, a world that is completely grey. But at night, when she’s wrapped up tight, her dreams are colourful and bright. Unable to contain her imaginative thoughts, Chloe tells of the vast blue seas, lush green jungly-trees and golden yellow sands she’s seen. But, hushed at once by her parents, Chloe is warned to keep such thoughts at bay – for the Grey Queen is out to wash all trace of colour away.

Join Chloe on her courageous journey to unleash all seven shades of the rainbow in this extraordinary and wholly original tale of bravery, self-expression and fighting for what your heart knows to be true. Perfect for ages 4+ and their families.

T S I X AR EN M THEN HEAV I

The Marxist in Heaven is a play that does exactly what its title page says it’s going to do. The eponymous protagonist ‘wakes up’ in paradise and once they get over the shock of this fundamental contradiction of everything they believe in.... they get straight back to work... and continue their lifelong struggle for equality and fairness for all... even in death. Funny, playful, provocative, pertinent and jam-packed with discourse, disputes, deities and disco dancing by the bucketful, this upbeat buoyant allegory shines its holy light on globalisation and asks the salient questions – who are we and what are we doing to ourselves?... and what conditioner do you use on your hair? By Hattie Naylor. Part of National Theatre Connections. TICKETS: £5

AVALON ENTERTAINMENT PRESENTS

Four-Time Chortle Award Nominee. John Kearns returns! Still a slave to dairy, the Gregorian calendar and Greenwich Mean Time, he is flesh and blood after all. A funny man, not for everyone of course, but remember this mustn’t be mistaken as an invite, rather a heads-up. Based on the theory that the most interesting places on maps are the empty spaces, John has booked a tour, stopping by at some places that look like people share hot water bottles with their landlords. The show implores you to learn lessons from your ceiling and realise Fred Astaire actually knew very well what he was doing.

FOR MORE INFORMATION

THURSDAY 19 & FRIDAY 20 MARCH 7.30PM Back again by popular demand and with its original cast, Rob John’s much-loved play sets off on its third regional tour. Set in 1912, The Canada Boys is based on the true story of a group of workers at J & J Colman. The famous mustard company, concerned by rising unemployment in Norwich, offered some of its employees the opportunity of a new life on the other side of the Atlantic. The Canada Boys is the story of two brothers who’d never ventured further west than Wymondham, but who dared to imagine a new life for themselves in ‘The British Dominion of Canada’. This funny, sad and thought-provoking play which resonates with Norfolk voices and Norwich locations examines the relationship between a progressive company and its workers before the First World War. The Canada Boys is a play about ambition, love, duty, family and mustard. TICKETS: £12.50/£10 under 18s

SATURDAY 21 MARCH 7.30PM HARD-NOSED COW PRESENTS

When psychotherapist Liz explores the childhood traumas of her troubled new patient Nicki, little does she realise that she is unleashing histories that will place her own family in deadly peril. Even the most diabolical nightmares are nothing when the appalling horrors of past reality are confronted. Brian Clemens’ writing is terse, witty and resonant. Make no mistake – The Devil at Midnight is a very dark play. However, despite the grim themes, Clemens is a great entertainer who wants to give the audience a ‘good night out’ and he knows how to build suspense, subvert our expectations and make our hearts beat faster.

THE GARAGE | SPRING 2020 | HOLIDAY ACTIVITY  19


FOCUS ON BALLET

CONTEMPORARY

WHAT IS IT? Ballet is a highly formalised style of dance, with steps and gestures following specific positions of the arms, feet and body. Characterised by its grace, intricacy, precision and its vocabulary based on French terminology.

WHAT IS IT? Contemporary is an expressive style of dance that pulls on elements from different dance genres such as ballet, jazz and lyrical.

WHY CHOOSE IT? Ballet is a great confidence booster and will allow you to explore your creativity. The structured approach of ballet training helps to develop physical and spatial awareness, motor skills, co-ordination and control of movement through choreography and exercises. AS SEEN IN‌ There are many well-known ballets including The Nutcracker, Swan Lake and The Magic Flute. On screen ballet can be seen in the movies Billy Elliot and Ballerina, and the TV series Angelina Ballerina.

WHY CHOOSE IT? Contemporary dance encapsulates the meaning of embodiment by connecting the mind and body through fluid movements. Contemporary dance is perfect for those seeking to have a creative input into choreography and working in collaboration with other dancers and the tutor. AS SEEN IN‌ On stage in performances from companies like Rambert and is often in music videos such as Chandelier by Sia.

"She feels part of a group, it's great" PARENT OF GARAGE PARTICIPANT

"I like the teachers and how they give us freedom" GARAGE PARTICIPANT

"I love it! It's helped me make better friends than I could of ever dreamed of" GARAGE PARTICIPANT


FOCUS ON STREET DANCE

TAP & MODERN

WHAT IS IT? Street Dance is the umbrella term of a range of styles that originated from the “streets” of New York. It incorporates movements and techniques from other classical styles, like ballet and contemporary, and adds a modern twist to them. Street Dance includes elements from Breakdance, Hip-Hop and Commercial.

WHAT IS IT? Our tap and modern class is a combined class. Tap is a type of dance characterised by using the sounds of tap shoes striking the floor as a form of percussion. This includes a range of basic steps such as shuffles, toe taps, heel drops, springs, ball changes and many more. Modern is a free expressive style of dancing that developed in the early 20th century as a reaction to classical ballet. This includes movements such as isolations, stretches, travelling steps such as leaps and runs and a combination of all skills together through creative tasks.

WHY CHOOSE IT? Street Dance is a massive confidence booster as it is energetic and able to be adapted to the individual. Set to all the latest music as well as being nostalgic with the classics, it creates a real fun and friendly environment where someone can really explore who they are as well as what they enjoy. AS SEEN IN… Street Dance can often be seen in music videos such as 1, 2 Step by Ciara, the popular film series Step Up, viral dance videos and backing choreography for touring performances.

WHY CHOOSE IT? Both styles are great for rhythm and co-ordination, isolating body parts and performing in a theatrical way to a range of music from pop hits to classical tap soundtracks to aid understanding of timing and musicality. Creativity is encouraged as part of the Modern style for participants to add their own ideas to their performance. AS SEEN IN… Modern dance can be seen on the stage in musicals like Fame and often in music videos. Tap dance can be seen in musicals such as 42nd Street and Stomp.


PRE-SCHOOL: 3 MONTHS TO 4 YEARS At The Garage we believe it’s never too early to start your creative journey. Our pre-school classes are a perfect introduction to the performing arts for little ones. Spring term starts on Monday 6 January. The 3 months - 3 years classes allow you to engage in music, singing and movement, giving you time to bond and play creatively with your little one as they start to explore the world around them. The classes for ages 3-4 in Creative Dance, Tap & Modern or Street Dance will help build their confidence in a supportive environment, developing physicality, musicality and simple techniques.

SUPPORT SUPPORT US The Garage is a charity with a mission to enable children and young people from disadvantaged circumstances to have equal access to enjoy and develop through watching and taking part in performing arts. Through our Big Breaks bursary scheme, we support vulnerable young people to gain skills and confidence, to make new friends and gain an increased sense of belonging. In 2017/18 we engaged with 1,472 participants in challenging circumstances, delivering over 2,000 hours of one-to-one support. PHOTOS: TEELE PHOTOGRAPHY
