Miles Ahead

The Body of People (BOP for short) bring the jazz theatre dance production Miles Ahead to the Mill Volvo Tyne Theatre next Saturday (May 11). The live band includes such star names as Julian Siegel and Jason Yarde on saxes, Jay Phelps on trumpet, Neil Charles, bass, and Shane Forbes on drums. This provides the inspiration for the dancers who improvise the terpsichore as the musicians improvise the music. As the name implies, the music of Miles Davis is a major factor in the performance.  It promises to be quite an experience!
What it's all about with sound and video clips.
