The Ladies of Landfill was created within a three day residency with Julia Thorneycroft in April at The New Theatre in Exeter.
The process explored the Dance Theatre stylistic qualities of comedy, story telling and props to create a fun and ironic take on society. Inspired by Macbeth's witches and recycling - a unique combination- the six dancers played, explored and developed a great piece of work ready for audiences.
Julia Thorneycroft Dance (JTD) creates Dance Theatre that explores current social themes and human nature, engaging the core human emotions of its audience. We make accessible work that reaches out beyond the traditions of a theatre space and increasingly seeks to present at outdoor festivals and in the future, rural touring.
JTD is supported by Arts Council England, Theatre Bristol, Dance in Devon, Kaileider, Bath Dance, Bath Spa University, ICIA, Swindon Dance and The Northcott Theatre and have recently received a nomination from PDSW for British Dance Edition 2016.

Ladies of Landfill
Make them buy more than double
All the things they do not need
Fill them with insatiable greed
Throw away way if you must
We will love it, just because
