You know the legend, but how much do you really know about the lady behind the lamp?
New Creations Collective is delighted to announce Nightingale, a brand-new ballet based on the life and work of Florence Nightingale.
Florence’s legendary life was marked by monumental achievements and extraordinary events. In a society bound by convention, Florence changed history.
Get to know Florence like never before on a journey from her childhood surrounded by family, to finding her profession as a nurse, to becoming the first woman in history to receive an order of Merit from King Edward. This is a woman who’s story is worth telling!
Narrated extracts from Florence’s personal diaries bring her story to life through her own words, alongside a brand-new score, original choreography, beautiful set and costumes.
Performed by an accomplished cast of dancers and musicians, this high-quality, original ballet is guaranteed to be an inspiring and informative experience for adults and children alike.
Building on the success of NCC’s 2021 and 2022 performances of The Secret Garden, NCC are excited to offer another sublime original score by Adam Kornas and more authentic, character-driven choreography by Nina Monteiro.
New Creations Collective is a Kent-based dance company, using classical and contemporary artforms to tell timeless, hope-inspiring stories. The company aims to push the boundaries of typically theatrical artforms by creating work that is highly accessible and can be performed outside of the theatre.
