For The Talent Hub; a professional development programme for dance artists from the North East of England and Yorkshire with a learning disability or autism.
Diving into dreamscapes and acting out fantastical ways of being, Theo and a nine-strong cast unleash their imaginations to construct a world of alter egos, rockstars, curious souls and fierce goddesses. Pulsating with a wildly diverse mix of music, the stage transforms into a place of endless potential, where a series of shapeshifting acts remind us that the only limit is the edge of the imagination.
Theo has brought together a creative team that includes long term collaborator Leah Marojević for an affecting and visually arresting work that celebrates the brilliance of the moving body and the power of the imaginative realm to effect change.
