two sides of balletLORENT
We make dance theatre for all audiences. Some is for everyone, including families and children, and some is only for adults.
After Dark is our way of categorising our brand of performances made for adults who want to seek out our edgier, no holds barred and uninhibited side.

Being pregnant. It’s an odyssey. A takeover of body and soul. Some say after becoming parent your heart will forever live outside your body. How do you get ready for that?
