"A New Edge on contemporary dance, unique & clearly shows curiosity through a creative process."

- Audience member, Dukes Theatre 2014.


A Mirror neuron sparks when an animal acts and when it observes the same movement. During dance performance, the observers brain is virtually dancing along.

TurnAround Dance theatre explores how we use mirror neurons to learn, recognise and empathise with one another. With playful investigations into their genetic bond-these 3 sisters invite you to follow the journey of creation through fine art, sketches and live performance work.
