Aerial rope, Chinese pole, spoken-word: An honest exploration of the daily overhead of being women, the constant negotiation of consent, and how these shared experiences create unfaltering female bonds.
I was followed home by a man, as fear ran through my veins, I saw a woman and called out to her. As she took her young daughter’s hand and turned to me, I knew I would be safe. The unspoken language and connection between women creates an unbreakable bond, it offers safety, strength and an ever present tribe.
Join two women as they use aerial rope, Chinese pole, dance and spoken word to explore how each deals with the daily overhead of being women, the constant negotiation of consent, and how these shared experiences create deep female bonds.
'‘My heart isn’t strong enough to express my feeling towards this show. This is an example of aerial performance that is truly emotive and beautiful.'

Companionship and compromise; two things all long-term relationships have perhaps encountered. A heart-warming, heart-aching, reflective and perhaps funny at times tale, that looks at humanities notion of ‘love’.
Turtle Dove is a contemporary dance duet which was funded by Arts Council England as a work-in- progress. The work is a timeless tale of the heart that looks at stories of love; told by real people’s accounts of companionship and compromise. A heart-warming, reflective and perhaps funny at times, take on humanities notion of love whilst also touching on some of life’s heartaches.

Inspired by personal experiences and the psychological phenomenon of ‘imposter syndrome’, Leave me one explores social categorisation and the notion of losing, gaining and deserving one's ‘place’ in society.
Leave me one is a contemporary dance piece exploring social categorisation and the psychological phenomenon known as ‘imposter syndrome’. Inspired by Emily’s and the dancer's own experiences, this group piece interrogates notions of losing, gaining and deserving one's ‘place’ in society. Have you ever felt like you haven’t truly earned something? What you have, who you’re with or where you have got to?
Have you ever felt like the ‘imposter’?
