The Days

Djanogly Theatre

Theatre & Dance

£16 (£12 concessions)
1 hour (no interval) + post show discussion with the artists after Thursday performance
Suitable for ages 12+

Staged in-the-round and featuring nuanced performances and visceral dance that rips across the floor at the audience's feet, The Days engenders a world of ever-shifting negotiations, complex feelings and comic disconnection.

Renowned Finnish dancers, Maria and Ville, are joined by two local performers in an impossible loop of absurd and heartfelt exchanges. Taking the form of a lifetime shared, this is a compelling performance about care, resilience and the desire for connection.
