We are a small group of performing artists interested in meaningful conversation, dance for wellbeing throughout the lifespan, and stimulating social change through the telling of untold stories. We come from diverse backgrounds in the visual and performing arts, music, dance, education, counselling, occupational therapy and social gerontology.
