Have your say

Contemporary dance and live music come together when David Hughes Dance makes its Blackpool Grand Theatre debut on Monday, October 22.

David Hughes Dance pride themselves on delivering passionate and beautiful performance through skilful and innovative dance, which is both enthralling and accessible.

In true troubadour fashion David Hughes Dance will perform anywhere from a stripped down barn by candle light to a full opera house spectacular.

In The Chinaski Sessions, live Belgian rock music and explosive contemporary dance collide in an evening of highly-charged and skilled performance.

The Chinaski Sessions depicts an evening in the life of seven testosterone-crazed men, trapped in a rock-band’s home studio, as they try to finish their new album. Chaos ensues in the form of vicious drumming and explosive dance performance.

With a wink to Charles Bukowski’s cult character Henry Chinaski (who was an autobiographical character that Bukowski used in four novels) The Chinaski Sessions will take you on a journey following the antics of seven young men in an evening of debauchery and revelation.

The show will be an energetic experience with dance performances and a live band on stage at the same time

David Hughes Dance originally formed in 1996 as a solo platform and expanded in 2005 to a full ensemble. Artistic director, David Hughes, is renowned for his work with major companies – including London Contemporary Dance Theatre, Rambert Dance Company, Adventures In Motion Pictures and DV8 Physical Theatre.

David Hughes Dance will also spend a week with local dancers, working with them to create a curtain raiser that will open the The Chinaski Sessions, which is an exclusive project specific to The Grand Theatre.
