“A knocked-back ginger shot – a quick injection of fizz that fills my heart with joy and sets me up for the day”

- London Theatre

Four million BC:

“...and all across Earth’s surface, the silver wings of a billion pirouetting birds seemed to set the planet alight. The others marvelled and followed suit. Then came a day when the others danced bigger, brighter, and the birds were...oh, whatever happened to the birds?”



Dagny Wants To Dance.

Grey (a human) and Dagny (a giant bird) are ready to guide you through a world of vibes, moves and joy to get you ready for the party of your dreams. 

Dagny Wants To Dance is a bilingual piece that explores hope, connection and inclusion “the BSL is brilliantly integrated into the piece, in a way that felt essential by the end”

A pop-up thirty minute experience performed in BSL and English, this show is an intimate whirlwind of tender, interactive fun.
