This is a new duet telling the story of a young professional hurtling through life, getting nowhere fast, fighting off the warning signs from her body. Until her body fights back.
It's told through theatre, dance and aerial. We have previously been supported by Garter Lane Theatre, The Irish Aerial Creation Centre and Firkin Crane in developing this work.
The show handles complex topics with sensitivity and a light heart - offering new solutions to old problems.
It asks us to show Empathy to our own bodies in a fast-paced, caffeine-fuelled World. It asks us to embrace Failure and dance in the face of Shame. You'll laugh, you may cry, you'll leave the theatre wanting to hurry back Home to your own, precious Body.

We have an exciting opportunity to bring this show to Dublin for its premiere this September but we are unfunded. We want to do justice to the difficult themes of the show. For that we need time and for time we need money. We will be running workshops closer to the run to raise a small portion of funds. We have also applied for two small bursaries hoping to supplement our Fund It income.
We believe our show's message can impact positively and lastingly on the wellbeing of our audience. Getting it in front of the audience is the tricky bit.
THANK YOU so much for your financial, practical and emotional support!
