Captivating audiences from 3 months to 91 years old, 2+1 is a wonderfully accessible dance theatre piece about the rollercoaster-ride of early parenthood. Becoming a parent is such a profound shift in our identity, lifestyle, routine and perception, a period of such intense highs and lows. Performers Amir Giles and Tara Pilbrow navigate the fatigue, confusion, and moments of complete hysteria hand in hand. At the back of the space a washing machine spews out an endless torrent of laundry, sometimes the couple fight back….. sometimes the washing machine wins.

humourous look at parenthood” Marie McCluskey, Swindon Dance
