In collaboration with visual artist Alexander Millar, Launch Day celebrates the industrial history of our North East shipyard communities. Bringing to life Millar’s iconic paintings of the working man, hard at graft; this quirky dance production re-imagines these iconic characters, the “Gadgies” and showcases the industrial glory, culture, camaraderie and vibrancy of shipbuilding towns.
