How are you?
Do you want to play with me?

An energetic site-specific dance piece where two strangers meet, connect, and celebrate their new friendship. Together they look to the future with hope, optimism, and an appetite for life.

UP-CLOSE is about trusting each other, building resilience together, and letting go of the past. A highly physical dance show blending contemporary and street dance styles and peppered with humour.

No booking or tickets are required for this event.
