SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Show 2 | 13 – 14 September
Well? I don’t know
A season of self love
An isolated world, we must learn
Only by accepting
To find our sense of self
Constantly drives never ending confusion
Out of our control.
A dance piece exploring how we might read the state of wellness in ourselves and others.
