Wallflower is a show about how dancing shapes our lives, by Manchester-based artists ensemble Quarantine. Live on stage, performers try to remember every dance they’ve ever danced. In 2018/19, Wallflower will tour to seven locations across the UK. 

Alongside this tour of Wallflower, Kate and Sarah from Quarantine are inviting local people in each place we visit to share their own memories of dancing, creating portraits of people remembering dances across the UK. This site will be updated with new dances until spring 2019.

You can also share your remembered dances with us on social media #wallflowerdances.

Quarantine are delivering this tour in partnership with Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts, Brighton; Creative Scene, Dewsbury; GIFT Festival, Gateshead; Lancaster Arts; Rise Dance Festival, Findhorn; Square Chapel, Halifax; and the University of Salford. This tour is made possible with support from Arts Council England’s strategic touring fund, The Foyle Foundation and The Sylvia Waddilove Foundation UK.

Texts gathered and edited by Sarah Hunter, photography by Kate Daley, website by Lisa Mattocks.
