Feminists proclaim ‘times up’. Misogynists win presidencies.
Are we moving forward? Or hurtling back in time?

This new production inspired by stories of division and separation, weaves three duets into one absorbingly emotive evening which will leave you shifting from the familiar to states of dreamlike wonder.

"The evening’s new works, a pair of interwoven duets...show Cousins exploring new territory,both in terms of emotional range and the techniques he uses" ★★★★ The Guardian. Read full review goo.gl/gXAbLf 

Two new works sit alongside the ‘visually breath-taking’ (The Stage) Within Her Eyes, in which the female dancer never once touches the floor.

Don’t miss this chance to experience the highly visceral physicality that has wowed audiences the world over; guaranteed to keep you on the edge your seat.

"Simply one of the most stunning pieces of contemporary dance I have ever seen" - Londondance.com on Within Her Eyes

"Strikingly original" -  The Guardian on Within Her Eyes
