Gate’s major new dance work inspired by 999 calls

A fascinating dance show will open in the New Year at The Gate Theatre motivated by real life emergency calls.


Breathing Irregular is a major new work of dance-theatre inspired by extraordinary true stories taken from the transcripts of 999 emergency calls.

The experimental show will use the form of contemporary dance to explore a series of dramatic and uplifting real-life stories, which include a woman giving birth alone and a son desperately trying to resuscitate his father after cardiac arrest.

Featuring a company of four actor/dancers, Breathing Irregular celebrates the human capacity to cope and above all to survive. The stories are featured with the consent of the individuals involved.

Breathing Irregular, which runs from 28th January until 27th February 2010, will be directed by Carrie Cracknell and is choreographed by Jane Manson.
