At the heart of this programme is UP-CLOSE: An energetic dance piece where two strangers meet, connect, and celebrate their new friendship. Together they look to the future with hope, optimism, and an appetite for life. UP-CLOSE is about trusting each other, building resilience together and letting go of the past. Designed for two dancers and a car tyre, blending contemporary, street dance styles with circus skills, peppered with good humour and raw energy UP-CLOSE appeals to the liveness of children and ignites our yearning for physical contact. (25 mins)

➔ The performance is followed by a conversation to capture what the audiences have seen and an opportunity to ask questions. (15 mins)

➔ Finally, with ease of transition the creative team facilitate a movement workshop and almost without realising it, children can explore ideas from the show and experience the piece physically. (15 mins)
