‘Unparalleled beauty’ EdFest Magazine
Can you stay true to yourself, when everything suggests you change? 201’s raw, contemporary hip-hop returns in Smother: a story of two men’s broken encounter.
Returning after an acclaimed sell-out run at Edinburgh Fringe 2016 and an international tour, this groundbreaking production touches on themes of addiction, obsession, and the meaning of commitment. Award winning choreographer Andrea Walker directs a cast of seven dancers in a fast-paced, intimate performance, exploring the relationship of two young men.
