Dive into the pre-frontal cortex for an off-balance and emotive exploration of the three modes of emotional regulation: threat, drive, soothe. With grace and athleticism Soothe looks at the adrenaline, dopamine, and oxytocin that push, pull and drag us through life.
This 4-cast ensemble brings to life the movement of mental well-being in a thoughtful and rambunctious examination of the psychological systems that make us tick. With this new contemporary dance theatre work, award winning Infusion Physical Theatre weaves together non-traditional partnering and original music to follow the cravings of a post-lockdown society eager for recovery.
Apple ‘N’ Spice is participatory Indo-European family dance show (for children aged 3+). This charming new fairy-tale tells the story of two stepmothers; one from the East and one from the West. As the plot thickens and their stories entwine, the characters need the help of the audience to find their happy ending. The show brings Bharatanatyam, shadow puppetry, contemporary dance and an original music score.
The show is supported by Arts Council England, Hertfordshire libraries, Cambridge Junction, Mercury Theatre, Offbeat Festival-Oxford and Worthing Theatres and Museums.
Its finally happening! We’re heading to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival–its been a long road of pandemics, lockdowns, cancellations and postponements… but its finally here.

Award-winning artists deliver off-balance, emotive dance theatre embodying the hormones that push, pull and drag us through a post-lockdown society eager for recovery.
