Inspired by one of the great passions of the modern age, Shoes explores the gamut of footwear, from the highs of the Louboutin to the lows of the Croc.

Composed by Richard Thomas, in his first large-scale production since Jerry Springer – The Opera, and featuring the work of a team of leading choreographers, Shoes is a dance revue that sees life told from street-level perspective with wit, irreverence and affection.

Shoes features choreography and direction by multi-award winning Stephen Mear (Mary Poppins, Sweet Charity, Hello, Dolly!), alongside Aletta Collins, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, Kate Prince and Mark Smith.

Shoes’s cast of 12 dancers includes So You Think You Can Dance’s Chloe Campbell, Mandy Montanez and Drew Maconie, plus Zoonation’s Teneisha Bonner, and Aaron Sillis, winner of the South Bank Show Breakthrough award for his role in Matthew Bourne’s Dorian Gray.

Shoes also features a live band and four singers including Ali Jiear (Jerry Springer – The Opera, On The Town).
