Presented By Roza Moshtaghi/Shahrzad Malekian

Bouncing Narratives

9 & 10 September | 13:10 & 17:10 | Canary Wharf

Duration: 50 mins

What to Expect: Dance | Family friendly | Sensory spectacle | Speech free


This immersive performance has been created in and around a shipping container with a trampoline as a roof.

A playful jumble of images, sounds, and movements evoke experiences of joy, trauma and vulnerability, exploring the way in which past experiences bounce back into consciousness again and again. Audiences can experience the show from underneath the trampoline seated on cushions inside the container – or from the outside.
