Presented by The Hiccup Project


Cristina and Chess have both experienced smashing their two front teeth. It affected them. It got them thinking. In a culture preoccupied with perfect smiles, keeping a stiff upper lip and for everything to always be ‘fine’, how do we deal with difficult things? What happens if we don’t want to deal with them? Sometimes we laugh, sometimes we cry and sometimes we distract ourselves. But don’t worry: it’s okay, they’re dealing with it.

After a sell-out run at Brighton Fringe 2016 and a sell-out in Brighton Festival 2017, It’s okay, I’m dealing with it asks what we do when things aren’t okay. Through their multi-award-winning combination of dance, comedy and theatre, Cristina and Chess unravel their own struggles and vulnerabilities and try to piece together how to cope with them.

Physical comedy and dance are stupendous companions when they work – and Chess and Cristina have the energy and the intelligence to make it work. Their dance is skilled, their timing is spot-on, and their comedy is hilarious” – Fringe Guru

“Fizzing with wit and invention… Cristina and Chess have the kind of chemistry that can’t be faked” – Exeunt Magazine on ‘May-We-Go-Round?’

“Genre-splatting, refreshing, inventive… Theatre and dance that hurls custard pies at convention. Outstanding” –
Fringe Review

Supported by Arts Council England, Dance East, Dance Base and South East Dance.
