Anjali Dance Company presents Genius
An exceptional group of six dancers perform two dramatic explorations of genius. An inspirational performance of extraordinary talent and creative power.
“One of the brightest companies in British Dance.” Donald Hutera (The Times, Time Out, Dance Europe)
Gary Clarke’s Beethoven takes a touching and darkly humorous look at the extraordinary 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.
Lea Anderson MBE is founder of eminent companies The Cholmondeleys and The Featherstonehaughs. Gary Clarke is winner of the 2016 UK National Theatre Award for Achievement in Dance.
Genius is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and commissioned by Lancaster Arts.
