Kelly-Abbott Dance Theatre presents

Launch Day

Launch Day is a celebration of the working class and shipbuilding in all its industrial glory. Inspired by the paintings of artist Alexander Millar, Kelly-Abbott Dance Theatre crafts exciting and powerful movement, combined with an enchanting soundtrack featuring music by Mark Knopfler and Irish composer Breifne
Holohan. Launch Day brings to life Millar’s iconic characters – the ‘Gadgies’ –and British shipyard workers socially and at work.

Launch Day will delight anyone with a passion for the industrial history of the UK, celebrating the rich culture of country’s past and present.

Co-commissioned by Dance City and Queen’s Hall Hexham.
