Smooth shapes, loose tumbles and harmonious lines with effective, uncomplicated lighting. Eye-soothing synchronisation, syncopation, mirroring and the dancers’ personal connection made Swapping Shadows joyfully easy to watch.

Reviews:

“We dance with the shadows
And become more than we are
More than we could have been
Before we stumbled into the shadow shoes
And attempted to submerge ourselves
In them”

– Kathryn Rock (https://hellopoetry.com/kathryn-rock/)
