Fallen Angels Dance Theatre, who aim to transform the lives of people struggling with addiction, will perform a full length dance theatre production Upon Awakening on November 9 at University of Chester Kingsway Theatre.
Claire Morris from Fallen Angels said: “This is the first time Fallen Angels has performed in our home city, we are feeling really delighted that we can bring our production to our local community having performed to sold out audiences at The Lowry and Royal Opera House Studio Theatres.”
Artistic director Paul Bayes Kitcher has been developing the dance theatre production over the last two years, and with the support of University of Chester is bringing the production to their theatre at Kingsway Campus with professional dancers and people in recovery from addiction who have developed their skills and interests in the arts through our programmes.
The company will be joined on stage with a group of local people in recovery from addiction. The group have been meeting weekly at Campbell Hall in Boughton with funding from Cheshire Community Foundation.
The group have participated in workshops and choreography led by Paul Bayes Kitcher they have developed and will perform their performance as a curtain raiser for Upon Awakening. For some it will be their first performance on a stage.
Fallen Angels productions integrate people in recovery from addiction to create a fully inclusive authentic theatre production.
