Sorry, you missed this event, SIGN UP to get information on our forthcoming shows

As the only dyke in the dance class, Amy finds new moves for a more radical notion of femininity in this witty journey of transformation and becoming.

Blending dance, text and animation from visual artist Hetain Patel and a live digital soundscape from composer Jamie McCarthy, prepare for a high chance of virtuosity, introspection and humour.

With opposing fronts sweeping across the gendered body, how do we read a forecast in constant flux?

Winner of the Total Theatre Award 2019 - Judges Discretionary Award at Edinburgh Fringe Festival.

"All in all pretty terrific." ★★★★  Donald Hutera, The List
