Can you remember every dance you’ve ever danced? 


The people on stage in Wallflower are trying to remember every dance they’ve ever danced.  Some of them are professional dancers, some are not. Some might tell you that they can't dance at all.  


There are memories of dancing alone all night at a party; of whirling across the stage at the Paris Opera Ballet; of silently, slowly revolving with a new lover on a canal boat at night; of a repeated tic - a bodily habit that feels like dancing; of walking alongside their mother; of racing with a dog across a beach; of dizzily spinning children; of weeping and dancing; of hitting the mark for Anne Teresa De Keersmaeker....  


Wallflower is a 5 hour dance marathon.  Spanning a lifetime of music, fashion, politics, friendships, parties, love and loss, it’s a show about how dancing can shape our lives.  


Every dance is added to an ever-expanding archive, a vast record of hundreds of memories exhibited alongside the performance that begins with dances from early rehearsals and always ends with the last dance... 


Manchester-based Quarantine are a unique voice in British theatre, internationally acclaimed for their experiments with everyday life. Current work includes English, a collaboration with National Theatre Wales about language and identity, which premieres in June 2018; Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring., an epic quartet of three live performances and a film about the human lifecycle and our relationship with time; and our monthly project No Such Thing, where, for the last six years, we buy strangers a curry in exchange for a conversation.  

Wallflower  was developed with in-kind support from The University of Aberystwyth and  HOME, Manchester, as part of our relationship as Associate Company.
