Show Overview 

“Whatever you can do, or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it. Begin it now.” Goethe

See an exceptional group of six dancers perform two dramatic explorations of genius in an inspirational performance full of talent and creative power.

Gary Clarke’s Beethoven takes a touching and darkly humorous look at the extraordinary personal life and musical works of composer Ludwig van Beethoven, and in Bloodsucker Lea Anderson has created a stylised and gently humorous exploration of the legend of the vampire Nosferatu and his depiction in film.

Join Anjali Dance Company this November for Genius, a celebration of talent and achievement.

Genius is supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England and commissioned by Lancaster Arts.

“One of the brightest companies in British Dance”
Donald Hutera, dance writer: The Times, Dance Europe, Time Out

Both performances will include a post-show Q&A session, hosted by Northern Ballet's Learning department. This is free, and will be held in the auditorium with the dancers from Anjali.

Running time: 80 minutes including one interval

For group bookings please call the Box Office on 0113 220 8008.
