Join Ian – Scotland’s leading learning-disabled artist – and Gary as they hit the floor in this often hilarious exploration of what it really means to be a 'dancer'.   With a blistering soundtrack, careering from Kylie to Nick Cave, they invite you to join them on a discovery journey to what it is about dance that makes them feel most alive. Expect outrageously camp jerks and thrusts … and complete stillness.

This Unlimited commission completed a sold-out UK tour in 2014/15 and was originally co-created with the late Adrian Howells.

Dapper and delicate … such a lovely piece of work ★★★★ Guardian
