Dystopia is a dance theatre duet for the outdoors and unusual spaces that is performed in the round. This jaw-dropping and thought-provoking performance, is exploring the themes of our human need for connection and belonging, in opposition with our modern anxieties based on fear and violence. The piece speaks about the power balance in relationships. Striking physicality and an exciting soundscape take the audience on an intense and emotional journey. The show is ultimately a message of hope and a call for our common humanity. Featuring a fashion design twist, and acrobatics, this dance-theatre-in-the-round performance can be enjoyed by all.

Dystopia is suitable for outdoor arts festivals, outdoor public events, shopping centres and unusual spaces. We have been developing this performance since 2016, touring extensively across the UK and Internationally. Audiences of all ages, and walks of life can enjoy Dystopia from different perspectives in the round, as they attend an event or come across the spectacle by chance.
