Information

An exceptional group of six dancers perform two dramatic explorations of genius. A performance of extraordinary talent and creative power.

Gary Clarke’s Beethoven takes a touching and darkly humorous look at the personal life and musical works of Ludwig van Beethoven.

Lea Anderson’s Bloodsucker is a stylised and gently humorous exploration of the legend of the vampire Nosferatu and his depiction in film.

Join us for Genius, a stunning and entertaining celebration of talent and achievement.

Assisted Performances

We strive to provide access for all

We are delighted to offer a Relaxed Performance of Genius on Wed 20 Nov at 1pm.

Relaxed performances are designed to create a more calming atmosphere for audience members with an Autism Spectrum Condition, sensory and communication disorders or a learning disability.

At relaxed performances, we encourage an atmosphere where everyone feels safe and able to react to a show as they wish. Fewer seats are available for sale, providing increased wheelchair capacity and giving audience members more space to make them feel more comfortable. Attendees are welcome to walk in and out of the auditorium and make noise throughout a production. There is also a calm space near to the auditorium that can be accessed throughout the show. All of our front of house staff have specialist training in advance of a relaxed performance.

We encourage family groups, secondary schools and community organisations who would feel safer and more comfortable in a more relaxed setting.

Tickets £10

To book tickets please call our Access Line on 0121 689 1060 or visit the theatre in person. This performance is not available to book online.
