The Monocle, a newly created piece by Rendez-Vous dance is inspired by the secretly notorious 1930s Parisian lesbian club Le Monocle. The Monocle will be performed by six outstanding dancers. Conceived as a fun night out, The Monocle will re-shape traditional theatre settings into a club where audiences can participate in a highly virtuosic evening mixing dance and live

music.

Be our guest at The Monocle! In here the air is thick, warm and wavy with secrets and sensuality. Women laugh loudly, drink the night away and dance in each other’s arms.

A Made In The North East (MITNE) commission, Mathieu Geffré was awarded this prestigious commission by a consortium of nine north east venues who are working together on a three- year strategic dance audience development project led by Dance City and made possible with funding from Esmée Fairbairn Foundation. The project aims for the partners to develop a better understanding and commitment to programming dance performances in the region.
