Justice in Motion – On Edge

Motionhouse – Wild
What is it to be wild? This daring new dancecircus production explores our disconnect with the natural environment. In our increasingly urban lives, is the wild still shaping our behaviour? Where do we belong? Do we choose to survive as a lone wolf or engage with the pack and the tribe?
Talawa Theatre Company – The Tide
Unknown land, new arrivals, boarded doors and a suitcase full of hopes, dreams and aspirations. Co-created by writer Ryan Calais Cameron and choreographer Jade Hackett, ‘The Tide’ explores the narratives and experiences of migration within The United Kingdom while holding a mirror to an evolving British culture.
