Presented By Kapow


Part of Dancing City

4 & 5 September

Duration: 30 minutes

What to Expect: Speech free


Mayfly explores the fleeting, ephemeral nature of life and how our survival is inextricably linked to our environment. A spectacular fusion of water, dance and song together reminds us that nothing stays the same, but that we can stand up, overcome and create change.
