Now More Than Ever

About the show

Now More Than Ever is a three-part contemporary dance performance about appreciating, embracing, and protecting the world that we are part of, recognising that the need to do so has never been greater.

Act 1 (25 mins) is about looking outwards and appreciating the world around us. A reflection on how we connect to our surroundings and each other with care.

Act 2 (27 mins) was inspired by the physical and mental challenge of winter. Touching on seasonal change, climate anxiety, and the importance of support networks, we highlight the link between planetary and personal wellbeing.

Act 3 (26 mins) is about protest, and protecting what's important. In the face of destruction and greed, we look to the abundance and regenerative power of human kindness and the natural world.

In a time of climate crisis and climate anxiety the piece encourages people to explore their own connection to the planet and to counteract that anxiety with action. The three parts of the piece loosely follow the journey of a group of individuals, first noticing, then grappling with, and then defending the world they are part of – and coming together to do so.
