1930s Anyone?

Who wants to step back in time to the chic 1930s? Let me rephrase that: who doesn’t?

An exciting insight into the notorious Parisian lesbian club of the 1930s, The Monocle is going on tour at venues throughout the north-east in February. Newly created by Rendez-Vous Dance – who will be transforming theatres into the infamous lesbian club – choreographer Mathieu Geffré is inviting us out for a night of dance and live music. Through audience participation, Rendez-Vous Dance are the north-eastern contemporary dance company that seeks to tell untold stories of the LGBTQIA+ communities, always creating an inclusive and welcoming space for dance that has no boundaries. And make sure you stick around for the Q&A after the show when you’ll be able to hear from the choreographer and dancers. CJ

The Monocle: begins on 5 February at Gosforth Civic theatre and then tours to eight other venues right across the region. Details here: rendez-vousdance.com
