Presented by Cheap Date

A music and dance duet with dancer Grace Clayton and multi-instrumentalist, Seamas Carey (Kneehigh, Wildworks) created with associate director Kyla Goodey (Trifle Gathering, Kneehigh, Wildworks). A crash landing of self-expression, communication, humour, action and reaction through live music, dance, theatre, and digital media.

This visual monologue questions the physical, verbal, facial, tonal, nuanced way we talk to the world. An exploration and debate of music and movement that rebounds, vibrates, clashes, reacts and challenges each other in the same space, just as our words do.

Exploring the filth, fun and aftertaste of our everyday interactions. The work is a 60-minute humorous, intellectual, visceral experience that leaves you contemplating your own individual modes and forms of communication. The work, through the use of subtitles and sign language, is accessible to a deaf and hard of hearing audience.

Supported by Arts Council England and Hall for Cornwall

Age restriction 12+
