Southpaw ‘Rush’, Hull 2017

In recent years Event International’s work as a producer with Southpaw Dance Company and its acclaimed Artistic Director, Robby Graham, has taken many forms. The Southpaw touring shows ‘Faust’ and ‘Carousel’ remain in repertoire for UK and international dates in 2018 (contact [email protected] for details).

Over the past 12 months , two highly successful large scale commissions have been delivered.

In September 2017, Hull Freedom Festival commissioned a reworking of ‘Rush’ that gave centre stage to 100 local performers from the city and celebrated cultural expression and identity in the face of the struggles of daily life.


‘WordPlay’ (November, 2016) was part of the launch celebrations of the National Centre for the Written Word in South Tyneside. The landmark Word building in South Shields and its potential to inspire future generations were at the heart of the ‘WordPlay’ performance.
