Catch Me

Breath-taking, poignant and tender.

Catch Me is an intimate and surprising take on age, race and gender.

An older woman and younger man dance together through a landscape of abandoned chairs. They discover joy, risk and unexpected connections in a poignant duet.

A poetic mix of dance and acrobatics, Catch Me asks how we see each other and who we value.
