It’s unlikely that you remember every dance you’ve ever danced - the school disco, your first slow dance, a drunken boogie down the street or a wedding waltz perhaps? Well Wallfloweris here to remind you.
Something of a dance chameleon, Wallflower changes at every show as each performer chooses which of their memories of dancing to dance. Each of them brings a treasure trove filled with the joy of movement.
Manchester based Quarantine are a unique voice in British theatre. They create performances firmly rooted in the here and now, examining the minutiae of everyday lives and experiences.
Sat 22 October 4pm: An epic five hour version of Wallflower. Come and go as you please for this one-off celebration on the final day of the festival.
