"You have a plan, and then you don’t. You have a dream, and then you wake up. You fall in love, and your heart gets broken. The question is: do you pick up the pieces and try again?’

Plan B for Utopia is a playful dance theatre work exploring the notion of utopia and the role that imagination and creativity can play as a driving force for change in our personal and collective lives. Mixing dance, theatre and storytelling, the piece creates an intimate space where audience and performers can engage in a common endeavour to re-imagine the world.

Premiered during the 2015 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, the piece has been performed over 60 times and has been selected for the programme of British Dance Edition and Internationale Tanzmesse 2016 and the Made in Scotlandand British Council Edinburgh Showcase in 2017.

The work has also received invitations from venues and festivals such as The Place (London), Tramway (Glasgow), Brighton Festival, Tanzmainz Festival (Germany), Battersea Arts Centre (London), and the Mirabilia International Circus and Performing Arts Festival (Italy), and was shortlisted for the Fringe Sustainability Award in 2017.

Wholly delightful...What makes Plan B so enjoyable to watch is the way the danceers project their performances outwards, and draw the audience into the daftest and most intimate aspects of their quest"
