As the only dyke in the dance class, Amy finds new moves for a more radical notion of femininity. On a witty journey of transformation and becoming, she rides the blustery winds sweeping across the gendered body.
Blending dance, text, animation with a live digital soundscape, prepare for a high chance of virtuosity, introspection and humour.
Winner of the Total Theatre Judge’s Discretionary Award at the Edinburgh Fringe 2019.
