Join Poppy and her dog Peppy for songs and fun as she launches across the canvas sky, at the speed of light, towards the Paper Moon.

 GROW 

It's the first day of spring and tiny tendrils of new life are peeping out of the ground, stretching their way into the sunshine and a riot of glorious colour.

Tendrils unfurl, roots reach out and grow and find each other, and giant seedpods roll on to the stage in which the performers are hidden and gradually more and more tendrils unfurl, roots reach out and grow and are taken into a joyful Busby-Berkeley-inspired showstopper. Spring is well and truly sprung! 


GROW - for audiences aged 3-7 years - is a curious, mellow, playful springtime adventure, brought to you by  Indepen-dance4, the company that created the award-winning and internationally acclaimed Four Go Wild in Wellies

Some availability autumn 2020 and festivals.

Rendition

Using detailed research findings from The Rendition Project, Tragic Carpet’s radical new work tells the story of one man’s nightmare experience as the first suspect to be taken into the CIA’s detention programme. 


“...a profoundly moving piece of total theatre… beautiful, exquisitely made show driven by a quiet but fierce sense of humanity and compassion” Joyce McMillan, The Scotsman ★★★★
 
A potent and immersive installation which is where the action takes place and the audience experiences the work – ideal for community spaces, studios, exhibition spaces and galleries.  Uses an innovative mix of puppetry, soundscapes and visual theatre to shine a light on the collusion between the CIA and the British Government - and explores the juxtaposition between extreme vulnerability and absolute power.

Heroes

From All or Nothing and Room to Manoeuvre, Heroes is a fabulous family show for age 5+, 

In their quirky circus universe, two performers (and their miniature sidekicks) explore what it means to be a hero. The dynamic duo tackle the darker side of life in the spotlight and the pressures of being a role model with a never-ending list of enemies. Are we blinded by celebrity? Or are the ordinary people living extraordinary lives our true heroes? Families assemble – don't miss this clever caper told through aerial dance theatre and contemporary circus


​All or Nothing are Scotland's leading aerial dance company, pioneering aerial arts in Scotland since 2006, blending aerial acrobatics with dance, theatre and contemporary circus. 

Touring UK 2020 & 2021. Also available for festivals

The Unwanted

For 15 years, Thomas has faced a constant, stifling stream of rejection. Dates broken, relationships soured but even worse … dance pieces that never got made. From a large-scale interactive piece about the apocalypse to a piece exploring the nuances of cheddar cheese, for one night only, using letters of rejection as a starting point, Thomas will bring them to life. Maybe we’ll discover there was a reason that they never got made …
 

A comedy musical about failure - is this a metaphor of the current British political landscape? Is this the near future of the UK after Brexit within the EU? Does Theresa May feels like this? And Boris?


With comedy songs specially written by Mark Franks of The Overtones, and with lots of audience dancing and karaoke, this comedy dance theatre show makes for a brilliant night out.

Touring March & October 2020.

One-off performances available.

No Offence

Five performers weave together dance, animation, video design, film, sound and games to explore what it’s like for a young person to ‘come out’ in the 21st century. 

No Offence is aimed at young people aged 12+ and explores the experience of coming out in the 21st century, based on verbatim transcriptions of interviews with LGBTQI+ young (and not so young) people from across the globe through partnerships with LGBT Youth Scotland, the US-based It Gets Better and Trevor projects.

 

There is also a digital exhibition before show – the result of a year-long collaborative project with MacManus Gallery, Dundee.

From the award-winning choreographer Thomas Small, the first artist in residence with BBC Radio 2, and choreographer of V&A Dundee's opening ceremony.
