“Hilarious and witty: a joy" The Skinny
Multi-award winning May-We-Go-Round? is a collision of fiercely energetic dance and comic theatre. Honest, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny, Cristina and Chess jangle through the merry-go-round of romance, taking audiences along for the bitter-sweet ride. This is a show for anyone who has lusted or been in love.
From direct extracts in Chess' diary aged 10 to teenage summer flings, Cristina and Chess open a window into the highs and heartbreaking lows of their romantic encounters. Ultimately, it celebrates the power of their female friendship, the launch pad for their adventures
“All the best work begins with our deeply personal experiences. The Hiccup Project instinctively dig into that place and find a richly comic and authentically physical world there” Ben Duke, Lost Dog Dance
The Hiccup Project are Brighton based dance theatre duo, Chess and Cristina. May-We-Go-Round? is the company’s first work, winning the Fringe Review Award for Outstanding Theatre and South East Dance Space to Dance Award.

Their aim is to create engaging, innovative and accessible work that can be enjoyed by audiences with any amount of prior experience of theatre and dance.
Have you ever kicked yourself not being more quick-witted? Or re-played a conversation in your head that you wish had gone differently? This is about that. These are tales of sex and sassy comebacks, where things are turned on their head.
Tragedy becomes beauty, regret becomes comedy and the mundane wonders and traumas of life are laid bare.
