INSIDE is a fiercely evocative, highly-charged dance theatre piece

Jean Abreu first major work for his newled formed contemporary dance company, joining forces with one of the noisest glitch rock band in the UK 65daysofstatic

Featuring five outstanding male dancers INSIDE explores violence, incarceration, solitude and hope within the prison walls - a gritty, compelling production revealing surprising tenderness within the starkness of captivity.

'The pounding score's drums shatter the air like machine-gun fire or cushioning a tender suicide… brutally visceral'

Kirsten Innes, The List – 4 STARS

'Adrenaline racing on-stage and off…Dark, atmospheric and utterly absorbing'

Kelly Apter, Scotsman – 4 STARS

'Bracing and ecstatic in its vicious restraint…Sets the pace for abstract, erudite choreography this Fringe'

Gareth K Vile, Skinny – 5 STARS

'Contains elements of overpowering beauty which will remain with you for a long time.'


‘One of the UK’s most closely watched talents, a fluid muscular mix that looks like nothing else on the London stage.’ The Guardian
