In this original piece, three of Constella's performers showcase the architectural history of Darley Abbey, focusing on the houses of Brick Row, which were built to attract workers away from the industrial hub of Derby and into the new industry of Darley Abbey.
Brick Row is dedicated to Jane Manning OBE (1938 - 2021), the extraordinary new music soprano and a patron of Constella.
As part of Constella's Spin A Tale, a partnership with Derbyshire’s Darley Abbey to bring its heritage to life through a series of seven short films with newly commissioned dance, music and drama.
