The Recreational

This performance is free but you need to book a ticket -

Your ticket will also give you access to TransHuman Embodiment and Beyond by Rachel Gadsden & Freddie Meyers, which is taking place in the Foyer 7.30pm - 8pm. So please stay and experience this performance too!

Nua Dance's interactive film for BBC Arts and Dance Passion, commissioned by One Dance UK, The Place and Dance East, has paved the way for this immersive performance of NOISE for Deaf and hearing audiences. Prepare to question and explore your understanding of noise through vibrating soundscapes and reactive visuals. Follow the dancers on a captivating journey, inspired by their personal experiences of navigating communication challenges in a society bound by ableism and heteronormativity. Brace yourself for a mind-altering experience of self-discovery, leaving you energised and awakened. Choose your own path and immerse yourself in this vibrant, transformative performance.
