As one man risks everything for love, Northern Ballet presents the world premier of Jonathan Watkins’ 1984.
The Leeds-based company is bringing this cult-classic to life with at the West Yorkshire Playhouse in Leeds in September ahead of a national tour.
Choreographer Jonathan Watkins said: “George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four has been a constant inspiration to me since I first read it at 15. It is a powerful and thought-provoking allegory that now, more than ever, has resonance with the times in which we are living.”
Northern Ballet’s artistic director, David Nixon OBE, said: “Jonathan is an exciting choreographic talent and I am delighted that he accepted my invitation to create 1984 with us.”
