NGYT's Meraki Dance Company present - Hotline
Call in at your peril, listen in, but try not to laugh and prepare to sit uncomfortably as our young dancers tackle the very things that the small minded often ridicule and shame.
Meraki are ready to stand up and move the world in an attempt to create spaces where we can all be ourselves, celebrated for our shape and soul.
Come, be part of the movement, let's hang up this call together and move as one.
NGYT Present The Ménage Collective with their latest theatrical offering - Are we nearly there yet?
3 young dreamers, living in the in between, on a journey to their somewhere.
But today the traffic's stopped, time stands still, no one's early, no one's first and no one fails by being late.
An unexpected shared moment forces opportunity and the most unlikely of connections.
Running time: Two hours, including a 30 minute interval

The Hat Factory
The Hat Factory is Luton's leading arts and entertainment venue featuring live music, club nights, theatre, dance, films, children's activities, workshops, classes and gallery exhibitions.
It's a centre of artistic excellence set within a vibrant urban environment. It offers the young and the young at heart the chance to engage with the arts, to be inspired by the UK’s leading arts practitioners, and to develop artistic skills and confidence.
The Hat Factory is a combined arts venue in the centre of Luton. It opened in 2003 and since then has been the area’s main provider of contemporary theatre, dance and music. We work with both emerging and proven producers and artists, through programming, engagement programmes and our Associate Artist scheme. Their music programming is vibrant, offering an eclectic portfolio of high quality artists from the worlds of jazz, blues, folk, world music, indie and hip hop. Complementing their own programming, they welcome local/regional promoters to the venue, broadening their music offer and at the same time supporting young promoters and their businesses. They programme contemporary theatre and dance with a focus on fresh, new and relevant stories from both established and emerging touring companies who are making high quality work in the UK. They’ve programmed companies like Earthfall, Chickenshed, New International Encounter (NIE), Trestle, Menagerie, Eastern Angles, Atma, State of Emergency, 30 Bird, Tavaziva, Analogue and Jean Abreu Dance to name but a few.
The Hat Factory has flexible spaces of various sizes to suit every need. See Venue Hire for more information.
