Exploring the filth, fun and aftertaste of our everyday interactions, Dirty Words is a humorous, intellectual, visceral experience that leaves you contemplating your own individual modes and forms of communication.

A crash landing of self-expression, communication, humour, action and reaction through live music, dance, theatre and digital media. This visual monologue questions the physical, verbal, facial, tonal, nuanced way we talk to the world. An exploration and debate of music and movement that rebounds, vibrates, clashes, reacts and challenges each other in the same space, just as our words do.

A music and dance duet with dancer, Grace Clayton (Grace Clayton Dance, Cheap Date) and multi-instrumentalist, Seamas Carey (Kneehigh, Wildworks) created with associate director Kyla Goodey (Trifle Gathering, Kneehigh, Wildworks). The work, through the use of subtitles and sign language, explores modes of accessibility to a deaf and hard of hearing audience.

“Hilarious and energetic and didn’t require you to lie afterwards pretending you understood the concept.”
Memegirls on Cheap Date’s How We Lost It
