Notes & Reviews:
'A Simple Man' was commissioned to celebrate the centenary of the birth of the painter L.S. Lowry in 1987. Created by Gillian Lynne in collaboration with composer Carl Davis, this memorable production is performed by the Northern Ballet Theatre. Re-mastered for DVD, with the addition of recent interviews with Lynne and Davis, it gives a fascinating insight into the creation of an inspirational icon in the history of modern dance, which remains as fresh as ever.
