A dance and music show with fun interaction for ages 3-6 & grown-ups - in development Autumn 2023

Dance in the Dark takes us on a night-time adventure into a playful world of imagination. Audiences are invited to come in their favourite PJs for a slumber party in a giant sleepover den.

As darkness descends, we play in the spooky shadows, listen to night-time sounds, and feel the wind and rain on our faces as we encounter a storm. We meet friendly nocturnal creatures such as slithering slugs, magical moths and fantastical fireflies. Discover the magic of the dark as we whirl and twirl, catch a shooting star and learn how to be brave at bedtime.


Dance in the Dark is a multi-sensory feast, co-created with children and families, it features; contemporary dance, live music, immersive sound and audience interaction.
