Making decisions can be difficult. Especially if the decision is to stay alive.

Ambivalence tells the autobiographical story of a woman’s journey as we are invited to hear her unsaid thoughts through pages of her diary. The piece uses stunning aerial acrobatics and movement depicting her emotional journey as she flies over a stark white bathtub. The piece charts her journey from rock bottom to top of the world questioning: what is worth living for?

Pink Quotation Marks

Her versatility as a dancer, acrobat & aerialist transports her to many different physical planes: submerged in a bath, cavorting around its edges or propelled skywards on her trapeze. A thrillingly expressive performer." Review from scratch performance
