LIKE is a fun and revealing creative discussion through the body of two dancers extrapolated from the real life text messages of a couple in the early stages of a relationship. It will raise questions about the roles of tactile contact, body language and physical representation versus the one-stage removed world of social media and online interaction and how intimacy has the potential to be both harmed and heightened by technology.

I can do romance. Here’s a romantic gesture for you all…

This is a completely different demo cover of the wonderful Frank Sinatra’s ‘You make me feel so young’
