After Dark

Dark moon symbolAfter dark

Prepare for an original, seductive event like no other.

You'll sit cabaret-style, relaxing with a drink, on the Theatre Royal stage as the dancers move amongst you like characters in a dream. As they push their bodies to the limit, they'll take you on a unique journey with the glorious Theatre Royal auditorium as your backdrop.

An eclectic group of dancers push themselves to the limit body and soul with inspiration from a stunning soundtrack of songs.

Please arrive from 7.30pm, grab a drink and join us on the stage ready for the 8.30pm performance.

After Dark Trailer

"It was pure balletLORENT; it really couldn’t have come from any other company. And yes, the audience loved it and went wild at the end." British Theatre Guide

“After Dark is like stumbling into a heady party, watching agog from the outside. With love and strength as the theme uniting young and old, cultures, sexualities, I can’t help but feel the world needs more of this right now.”

Audience Member

“Such a privilege to see these amazing dancers close enough to hear their breath. What an amazing, intimate, exciting, powerful and joyous experience.”

Audience Member

“Immersive, honest and utterly mesmerising. It was painful and raw, but beautiful. One of the most powerful and inspiring shows I’ve ever had the privilege to watch.”

Audience Member

“A mesmerising blur of ecstasy and pain. Utterly inspiring. Phenomenal.”
