Dates and Times
Tue 7 - Wed 8 June at 9pm
Presented by the Hiccup Project
May-We-Go-Round? is a collision of fiercely energetic dance and comedic theatre. We jangle through the merry-go-round of romance, taking audiences along for the bitter-sweet ride. A provocative and playful insight into our romantic encounters, it swings wildly between hilarious truths and intimate vulnerabilities. We are two young women open a window into the tangled, delirious mess of it all, exploring the romantic clichés we can all so uncomfortably recognize.
We allow ourselves to dive fully and joyfully into love, embracing the dreamy delights of lusting, relishing the moments of singledom and dealing with the ‘difficult stuff.’ Our friendship is the anchoring thread, the launch pad for our exciting and heart-breaking adventures. We trip over, feel vulnerable, try to be sexy, get rejected and are downright silly along the way.
We are enthralled and compelled by our romantic encounters, yet at times flummoxed and irritated by the whole process. Are we enjoying it? Yes. Does it make sense? No. But, round and round we go…
