Following the success of their 2021 production Speak Volumes, National Youth Dance Company (NYDC) once again collaborates with internationally renowned choreographer Alesandra Seutin.

Thirty two outstanding young dancers present a new contemporary work, exploring the relationship between movement, voice and music.

Quartier Paradis dives into parallel universes where there is no apparent endgame, a place built on the fantasy of an ardent greed for a power that continuously shifts. Where ritual, memories and ancestral heritage will keep you standing; revealing the alarming reality of a society locked in a cycle of tyranny. Who will eat the apple?

Jose Parra: Fly! Tomato! Fly! (Show in Progress)
Tickets: Free, but booking required
Click Here to book online.

Here it comes, ‘Fly! Tomato! Fly!’, a ridiculous unabashed explosion of red on the horizon. As Antonio Gonzalez gets diagnosed with testicular cancer he faces two choices: to take his illness as an opportunity to grow and one day inspire others to change their lives or to beat himself up and stay small in a world of small people for the rest of his life. A provocative and playful exploration of a man's struggles to accept who he is in the face of mortality.

Jose Parra is collaborating with award-winning director Jamie Wood to create a visual and visceral show, performed in both English and Spanish.

What if there was another take on the Trojan War, an untold-breathtaking-adventure you had never heard before?

Enter Medusa. She was there.

Monstrous gorgon? Snakes for hair? A turn-to-stone glare? Perhaps. But she was there - as a bodiless head strapped to the shield of a goddess.

Her forever-open-eyes saw it all: Epic combat. Mighty swords. Giant horse-sculptures filled with men. But as the war raged on, Medusa’s petrifying gaze focused on three extraordinary women who might just hold the key to her ultimate hope.
