Opportunity to see brand new Dance Theatre Production Roma at historic York Minster

25 November @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

£15 – £16.50

ROMA is a Dance Theatre Production that will be touring theatres and some very special venues throughout the North of England from 20 October – 9 December 2022 with a very special performance planned  at York Minster on 25 November at 7.30pm.

 

Created by Anglo-Sicilian choreographer Anthony Lo-Giudice Roma will feature a team of internationally renowned performers – both dancers and musicians. Performers include: Bradley Creswick MBE, Rosie Macari, Brendan Murphy, Molly Procter, Caroline Reece and James Southward.

 

With a British mother and Italian father, Anthony explores identity, borders and what it means to call a place home, at a time when these subjects are pertinent in contemporary Britain today.

 

In this semi-autobiographical work, Anthony reflects on the intimate musings of his parents’ accounts of one another, shaping them into a series of fleeting memories and imaginations, recollecting their tempestuous jostle between love and cultural divide.

 

Says Anthony:

“Roma is a recollection of memories and reflections on how my family, heritage and nationality have made me the person I am today.  These musings, although personal, form the basis of a wider study of contemporary society.

“My work as a choreographer is often a blend of folklore fantasy, nostalgia and working-class anxieties that are communicated through the visual aesthetics of dance and the moving body.  I have created Roma to enable me to understand my parents at a deeper level, whilst they are still alive to tell their stories.”
