Rejoining Jane - live show

Immerse yourself in a playful and joyful dance experience as “Tick Tock Bridget” take you on a journey in and out of reality, swapping between the factual and the fictitious. The “Rejoining Jane” live show is a delightful dance theatre performance set in a cafe, which premiered with a sell out run at the Brighton Fringe Festival back in Spring 2017 Since then the company have channelled their story of eccentric traveller Jane and her solo expedition across the world and toured across the UK with performances popping up in Leeds, Edinburgh, Brighton and Portsmouth.

The show invites audiences to eavesdrop on a book group’s monthly meet-up, discussing their latest read ‘Rejoining Jane’ in their local cafe. The three dancers and the audience find themselves being carried in and out of Jane’s turbulent adventure, all within the confines of a cosy cafe. Together they delve into her story, travelling from Bromley to Papua New Guinea (via Ibiza!) with various escapades and secrets that unfold along the way.

Travel with them in their pursuit of 'Rejoining Jane' and share in the delight that this brings - all within the confines of a cosy cafe!

Shortlisted for South East Dance's Space to Dance award.
