Kelly-Abbott Dance Theatre presents
Launch Day

Launch Day is a celebration of the UK in all its industrial glory. Inspired by the paintings of North East based artist Alexander Millar, Kelly-Abbott Dance Theatre crafts exciting and powerful movement, combined with an enchanting soundtrack featuring music by Mark Knopfler and composer Breifne Holohan. Launch Day brings to life Millar’s iconic characters – the ‘Gadgies’ –and British shipyard workers socially and at work.

Launch Day will delight anyone with a passion for the industrial history of the UK, celebrating the rich culture of country’s past and present.

Commissioned by Queen’s Hall Hexham with funding from Arts Council England. Sponsored by Urban Splash.

“Launch Day is a beautiful work and deserves to be performed region wide and beyond.”
