COAL – The True Story of an Industry and a Community’s Fight for Survival


Following a critically acclaimed sell out debut spring tour at dance venues and theatres across Britain, Gary Clarke Company now sets off on a major national autumn season with COAL, which arrives at Blackwood Miners’ Institute on 24th and 25th November at 7:30pm.

COAL is a riveting dance theatre show that takes a nostalgic but honest look at the hard hitting realities of life at the coal face, the back breaking physical graft and the impact it makes on body and soul, both underground and on the surface.

Strong, powerful and emotive, COAL explores the darker underbelly of the mining industry, unearthing the true nature and body wrecking demands of a working class industry now almost completely forgotten.

Playing live under the direction of Steven Roberts at Blackwood Miners’ Institute will be members of Tredegar Town band.

COAL is suitable for those age 12 and up.
