Daughter Daughter: before I met you
Joseph Toonga

Daughter Daughter peers through the keyhole into the pervasive experience of fatherhood. Inspired by real stories from men and their daughters, this show is a highly physical and emotive new dance show about fatherhood.

Joseph Toonga shines a stark and honest light on this profound experience through his signature abstract hip hop and contemporary style choreography.

Co-commissioned by Dance East and South East Dance. Supported using public funding by Arts Council England, Yorkshire Dance, Greenwich Dance and Redbridge Drama Centre.

Elena Giannotti
Floating House

Floating House is a modular choreography project, involving several artists and their ideas. It is a sprawling project, carried out in different places and with different materials and people. It looks at ‘dreams’ both in its mental and physical forms; with each performer revealing their own experiences.

The performance that ensue stages and dissects their visions in a hopeful expression of their collective imagination.
