UnderStory: a contemporary dance performance

Each person has a story to share. Follow the journey of four individuals exploring and finding where they belong. When someone is feeling alone there is space to be heard and be supported from others. The dance shares an arch of their empathy, support and struggle between each other. 

Inspired by stories pre and post pandemic from adults aged over 60 living in East Herts.
