Project Description

Under the artistic direction of founders and performers Beth Powlesland and Eithne Kane, Manchester-based performance company Kapow works with environmental themes, using dance, physical theatre and circus to engross audiences in movement-driven stories in outdoor settings.

Touring in 2020 are:

Adrift: A female duet performance on a giant wobble board conjures a raft in the middle of the ocean.  The two women battle the odds in their stormy environment, eventually learning to live in their small, unpredictable landscape.
Climb the City: Kapow’s thrilling exhibition of physicality makes use of dance, circus, parkour and climbing to explore the urban environment in a bespoke promenade performance.
Grow: An energetic and uplifting family-friendly duet which is an entertaining take on gardening and a touching commentary on the future of humanity.

Upcoming tour dates:

9 August
