A double bill of dance with a pinch of humour will be performed in The Round at The Dukes in Lancaster on Monday.

No Big Deal features two dance pieces created and performed by George Adams and Ellen Turner, right, who have previously worked for Lancaster-based Ludus Dance.

In Solitaire, George struts recklessly about the stage quaffing alcohol and mocking modern culture while throwing in the occasional jab to the dance world.

Trained at the Rambert School of Ballet and Contemporary Dance, he has worked extensively as a performer, choreographer and teacher for leading national companies.

His work has been programmed at several festivals and he recently created a piece for the Harris Flights project in Preston.

Ellen Turner was awarded the Turn Prize for choreography in 2012 for Car Door Moment, which she will perform as part of the double bill. It is a mischievous, tongue-in-cheek and physical dance work that celebrates reactions to life.
