Catch Me live at GDIF

We are so excited to let you know that we will be performing a NEW re-worked version of our 2019 show Catch Me, outdoors, live and in-person at Greenwich + Docklands Festival (GDIF) in London on Saturday 5th September.

A few months ago we couldn’t envisage how we’d ever be able to create a show – let alone such an intimate piece – during this pandemic. However here we are, with many thanks to GDIF – the first outdoor arts festival to take place this year.

Catch Me is a duet – at a distance – between an older women and younger man. A surprising take on age, race and gender, two bodies discover unexpected connections whilst never quite reaching each other. Both performance and installation, Catch Me asks how we see each other and who we value.

Take a behind-the-scenes sneak peak at how our performers, Jerone and Susan – Susan and Jerone -experienced creating performance in this new world that we find ourselves in.


Catch Me is performed as part of Dancing City, GDIF’s annual outdoor dance programme which has been reinvented to allow audiences to experience more intimate performances whilst observing social distancing.

Saturday 5th September 2020
There will be two performances on the day

Location: Upper Riverside, Canary Wharf, London, E14 8RS
