National Dance Award-nominated all-male 2Faced Dance Company and students take to a North Lincolnshire stage later this month.

The South Bank Dance Hub brings one of the UK’s leading dance companies, 2Faced, to perform Dreaming in Code at Scunthorpe’s Plowright Theatre on Thursday, January 28 alongside young people from two local schools.

Dreaming in Code will start at 7.30pm and is an explosive double-bill from one of the UK’s leading all-male dance companies, 2Faced.

It is set to be an unmissable evening packed with adrenalin-fuelled, kinetically charged dance theatre. Students from Melior Community Academy and St Lawrence Academy will also perform on the night.

The company has been working with young people from both schools since autumn 2015 as well as providing workshops for students from the Grimsby Institute.

The production has been brought to North Lincolnshire by South Bank Dance, through Arts Council England funding. South Bank Dance is a partnership made up of several organisations led by Lincs Inspire Ltd and North Lincolnshire Council.

Councillor John Briggs, cabinet member for Assets, Culture and Housing said: “I think the South Bank Dance project is a really good way to develop local talent at every level of dance provision. It offers more grassroots dance opportunities and provides dance provision as part of our Active Together programme. This is the first time 2Faced has performed in Scunthorpe, which is very exciting.

“The pupils from both academies have been working very hard and this is a performance not to be missed.”

The incredible choreography comprises of two pieces by Eddie Kay and award-winning artistic director, Tamsin Fitzgerald. Dreaming in Code comes to The Plowright as part of an extensive UK-wide tour.
