What: Theatre falls in love with dance and jazz in Drew McOnie’s world premiere dance piece featuring a completely original score by Tasha Taylor Johnson (TTJ).
Drew McOnie, known for his stint on BBC’s So You Think You Can Dance, is considered to be the pretender to Matthew Bourne’s throne, whilst TTJ is fast becoming the hottest ticket in London’s jazz scene with her smooth vocal styling and infectious human rhythms.
The two are working together for the first time on Good Morning Midnight, which is inspired by a poem of the same title by Emily Dickinson. The piece is a physical exploration into the sensual psychological corners of the female psyche and allows the dancers to leap from the confines of the chorus line and connect with an audience on a personal and individual level.
Come roll in the sheets with two of London's hottest young creative artists as they collaborate on a project that has the stamina to keep you up all night.
The cast includes some of the most alluring theatre dancers in the industry: Jonathan Ollivier (Principal Dancer with Northern Ballet, Alberta Ballet, New Adventures, Michael Clark), Henry Davis (Rocky Horror Picture Show, Dirty Dancing, Legally Blonde, Chariots of Fire) Simon Hardwick who is also Assistant Choreographer (Wicked, Grease, Footloose, Aida, Tommy, High School Musical 1&2, Water Babies), Carrie Johnson (Birmingham Royal Ballet, Deutsche Oper am Rhein Ballet, Principal New Adventures), Kirsty Mather (New Adventures, Captain America, Mamma Mia The Movie, Evita, West Side Story, Joseph), Jaslyn Reader (NDT 1&2, Soloist with Melbourne Ballet Company).
