Sensational former DV8 performers and choreographers Rob Tannion and Liam Steel joined forces with writer Ben Payne to create an emotional roller-coaster that shatters the limits of physical and emotional endurance.

The story is based on a real-life event: David Copeland – the ‘Soho Bomber’ – walked into a gay bar in London and left a nail bomb which went off with terrifying results. Rob and Liam worked with Ben producing text and movement simultaneously; creating a show that is neither dance nor theatre. It explores the question: ‘Do you know who the person beside you is?’ A very pertinent subject for our society today, treated with an intensity that is positively knuckle-whitening.
Performed by Liam Steel and Ben Wright.

“Film in the flesh… They throw out provocative dialogue with the same ease as they throw each other.” –

“Intoxicating, thought provoking drama exploiting the theatre space to its full potential… Everyone should see this.” – Dance Europe
