Presented by Fuel and Encounter as part of Dance International Glasgow
Scottish Premiere 

Friday 18 October, 7pm
Saturday 19 October, 2pm

This performance is at Platform. 

When a day trip to the Natural History Museum turns to tragedy, one family is left as hollow as the cold bones of the blue whale. At home, they attempt to make sense of the unimaginable in ways as unpredictable as the incident itself.

A surreal and confronting new work combining dance and new writing, participation and performance, children and adults. Smashing two restricted worlds into one radical show, adults attempt to come to terms with their lives spinning out of control while children with sound protective headphones are in an auditory world of their own, storming the stage and embarking on a journey of hope.

Recommended for ages 16+ 

The content and theme of the production may be upsetting for some audience members. The dialogue in the show contains references to self-harm and violence toward animals.

OFF-SITE EVENT - this show takes place at, and is booked through, Platform>


Commissioned by The Place, supported by the Albany, Folkestone Quarterhouse and Arts Council England.
