Gypsy Queen by Hope Mill Theatre followed by L’uomo by Anthony Lo-Guidice
Lawrence Batley Theatre’s Victoria Firth attended the Artist as Entrepreneur (AAE) in the North. During these events, she had discussions with artists about how Lawrence Batley Theatre might programme smaller scale and new work, so this Curatorial Voice series of events is about exploring an answer to this. Other programmers will also be invited to these evenings in order to share developing dance pieces with them. Two of the pieces that she is presenting were shown at the showcase event during the AAE in Newcastle and one is an AAE artists work.
Rob Ward - Gypsy Queen
Gypsy Queen is a critically acclaimed love story about two men who find each other in the most unlikely world; the world of professional boxing.
It explores LGBTQI visibility in sport, faith and sexuality and the notion of masculinity, played out with biting humour, heart and soul.
Anthony Lo-Guidice - L’uomo
L’uomo (translating in Italian as ’The Man’) is a short dance theatre duet centered around two men, entwining themselves through intimate gestures that interact and reciprocate the invitation to connect to another, examining what means to be touched, with at the heart of it, a play of hands. Hands testifying to trust, confidence and simplicity within the shelter of love.
