    “Because I agree with you, I agree that something somewhere is about to burst its banks. I feel it too. We’re the same. I promise we’re the same”

    In a shed by a ring road, Paula is getting ready for the end of the world. Annie has just arrived to stop her. The sisters sit outside as the sun sets, each trying to convince the other of the truth.

    Here, in the theatre, two dancers are learning to support one another.

    Palaces is an experiment. A piece of dance accompanied by an audio drama. Or maybe a piece of audio drama accompanied by a dance. It’s about disappointment, tarmac, disasters, knights, sisters, tinned food, and dread. And love?

    Movement by Martha Harlan
    Text by Laura Henderson Child
    Danced by Ciara Amas + Tasalla Tabasom
    Spoken by Frances Child + Mary Sansbury
