Enter CIC are very passionate about ensuring that the community we serve have access to high quality artistic provision. We always provide a wealth of artistic experiences and we work with an array of professional companies from across the artistic spectrum.  In the New Year our students will participate in a  number of master classes and an array of guest residencies. As always we are very careful to ensure that the visiting companies are suitable and that any work supports our current curriculum and provision.

We are delighted to be able to inform everyone that on the 22nd January 2013 the internationally acclaimed dance company balletLORENT will be conducting a workshop at Enter for our upper school students. The workshop focuses on the Brothers Grimm tale of Rapunzel.

The new version of this classic fairytale has been written by Carol Ann Duffy and Co-produced by Northern Stage. The piece is a Sadler’s Wells and New Writing North commission, in association with Durham Book Festival. Other exciting collaborators include Composer, Murray Gold (Murray has been the musical director for the new series of Doctor Who for the BBC since 2005) and Costume Designer, Michele Clapton (BAFTA and Royal Television Society award winner and currently Costume Designer on Game of Thrones)

Full of dark beauty, balletLORENT’s new version of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale Rapunzel combines desire, devastation, romance and rescue with spellbinding effect for adults and children alike. Rapunzel premiered with great success at Durham Gala Theatre on the 18th October 2012 and has now embarked on a national touring programme that includes five performances at Northern Stage, Newcastle, 21-23 February 2013. 
The dance workshop will explore story-telling using the expressive language of the body and our students will have the opportunity to use props from the show and learn some of Liv Lorent’s choreography. The sessions will be delivered by two of the professional dancers from the show Philippa White and Gavin Coward, Rapunzel and the Prince to be specific!

This is a fantastic opportunity for our young people and we very much look forward to welcoming the company to Enter CIC venue.
