Does instant connectivity help our attempts to make meaningful relationships with our surroundings and our fellow humans? Or does it reinforce feelings of isolation and inadequacy as we reflect upon and react to connections made and lost? A dynamic exploration of the ways in which modern methods of communications affect us all, using dance, physicality, aerial acrobatics, tight-wire walking and original music. A modern love story set in our digitally connected world. Distanced by a world of wires, two lost individuals work on finding each other, but in doing so must first find themselves.

Catch the Bird Who Won’t Fly is a digital dance-theatre piece made during the Covid lockdowns by working remotely with artists to bring attention to the devastating reality of a crime, which increased during lockdown and is often shrouded in secrecy – domestic violence against women. Using animation and green screen technology, four individual stories are told through Kathak dance from real-life experiences that were researched with the company’s network of women’s group users.

City Breakz is an outdoor pop-up hip-hop performance trail taking over unexpected places in city and town landscapes, where anything can become a dancefloor. Four dancers – each armed with a patch of linoleum and sound system – journey through urban environments, throwing shapes as they navigate the uneven surfaces and gradients of the city. Will they find each other in time for the final showdown? It’s hip-hop… but not as you know it. Funded by Creative Scotland Touring Fund for Theatre and Dance. Supported by: The Workroom, Merchant City Festival, The Brunton, Summerhall and Tramway Residency Programme.
