Don't Trust the Ground (2013)
Created for undergraduate dancers at Falmouth University, Uglybird Dance Company

"You dream of a house with sky-blue walls; wearing a coat with red buttons...instead you see the same crack in the same wall...This has the effect of making your limbs feel heavy; like you're perpetually drowning...You look around & start to suspect you don't exist" - Caitlin Moran, Moranthology

Taking inspiration from the writing of Caitlin Moran, using themes of freedom & escape from the weight of the everyday.

Performed at AMATA, Falmouth University as part of the final year assessments & performances.
