The work was shown at ‘Nocturnal Creatures’, an all night arts festival by Whitechapel Gallery. Set in Toynbee Hall’s historic Lecture Hall, the work explores connectedness and communication, through physical exchange and unexpected alliances.

How do we connect, communicate and share information with other human bodies but also the world around us? The performance explores exchange of ideas through movement and sound, touch and song, exploring modes of communication beyond language.  It further explores power structures and dominant discourses, creating a space for improvisation and alternative, non-verbal meaning
