This autumn VOXED presents the long-awaited world premiere of its new production and first full-length work Out Late at The Place, London on 19 & 20 November and Stephen Joseph Theatre, Scarborough on 25 & 26 November.
Choreographed and directed by Wayne Parsons, Artistic Director of VOXED, Out Late is a dance-theatre crime drama that follows the fiercely closeted Sebastian who falls in love with out-and-proud gay man Vinnie and tries to hide his new relationship from his controlling wife Fifi. While unravelling Vinnie’s murder, what unfolds is a dark and twisted story of jealousy, shame and manipulation.
Out Late blends virtuosic choreography with a compelling script, written by Ankur Bahl, and performed by some the UK’s most celebrated dance-theatre artists; Folu Odimayo, Caldonia Walton and Stuart Waters. Out Late also features music from Angus MacRae and dramaturgy from Pooja Ghai.
Alongside the live performances, a digital version of Out Late will be presented in partnership with Swindon Dance via their recently launched online platform in the autumn.
Wayne Parsons, Artistic Director of VOXED said: “I am proud to finally be presenting Out Late, our first stage production as VOXED. As an artist and choreographer, I am deeply interested in the intersection between dance and theatre and combining these two art forms to share highly original stories that move people. There’s so much I’m excited about in presenting this work; Out Late is our first crime drama, our first full-length work, and features an LGBTQ+ storyline at its heart. I can’t wait to share this work with audiences in London, Scarborough and beyond.”
VOXED became the first dance company to become Associate Company of Stephen Joseph Theatre in Scarborough. Wayne Parsons is a Commissioned Artist at Swindon Dance, having been Associate Artist there from 2018 – 2020.
