After Dark

Dark moon symbolAfter dark

Prepare for an original and seductive event like no other.

Sit cabaret style and relax with a drink as 12 dancers move amongst you without seeing you, like characters in a dream, dancing on platforms, turntables and swings.

As the dancers push their bodies to the limit powered by a stunning soundtrack of emotional songs, they will take you on a unique, heady, atmospheric journey in this exclusive chance to witness dancers close up.

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

These very special nights are an exclusive chance to experience scenes inspired by the ever popular la nuit intime, Designer Body and The Night Ball, with some original dances to savour.

After Dark, A Short Film

Filmed at Northern Stage in November 2018 by Luke Waddington & Vilte Balciunaite

Music - To The Brink (J. Bramwell), I AM KLOOT

"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.”
