Bringing together dance and poetry, a reflection of life in the strange world that we find ourselves in today. Environmental concerns, wildness, improvisation, children's voices and music weave together. Words are stripped from meaning, dance from gesture to reflect the broken air that we breathe. This is a tilted show, raw, sometimes wild, but never far away from our intuitions. It aims to bring people into a mood from which there is no escape. Through it all, the bodies and voices ask if there is the slimmest possibility of hope...
