Catch Me

A new outdoor show exploring expectations of gender and age 

Catch Me is an intimate and surprising take on age and gender.

An older woman and younger man balance, climb and jump across a stack of chairs. Together they discover all the people they can be.

Part installation and part performance, Catch Me asks how we see each other and who we value.

Join Upswing for an poetic mix of dance, circus and chairs. Performed in public spaces for the entire family.

Now available for UK and International outdoor festival and event bookings for Summer 2020

“Catch Me was a beautiful and poignant exploration of relationships and human potential. The show is visually simple but very effective…It really challenged perceptions for circus and physical theatre and was a perfect fit for the Festival.” – Rachel Nelkin, Head of Creative Programmes, The Albany, Deptford

“Their connection was electric and their perfect balance of weight and stacking of gravity allowed an effortless performance…eclectic mix of beauty through generations.” – Review Number 9 

“Consistently engaging.  Age in the mind.  The imagination accepting, rejecting, creating. Encompassing the entrenched and the totally free.”  – Audience member, Age Against the Machine Festival, Deptford
