Notes: The concept of ‘Brass Band Powered Dance’ is not a familiar one for many of the world’s brass bands, however in May 2015 Tredegar Town Band along with Rambert Dance performed the world premier of ‘Dark Arteries’ at Sadler’s Wells theatre, London. The project explored cultural, historical and musical boundaries interwoven with stories of the brass band movement and the miners industry. The thirtieth anniversary of the 1984 Miner’s strike, is taken as a starting point for the creation of this contemporary piece of music and dance, that looks forward as well as back to the 1980s.
