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 2022 are:
Mayfly: Kapow’s most ambitious piece to date, with a custom-engineered set incorporating 5 fountains, programmed to shoot water into the air in sync with the two dancers’ choreography. The piece explores a poetic narrative expressing the transformative strength of women and inspired by the brief life of the Mayfly.
Grow: An energetic and uplifting family-friendly duet which is an entertaining take on gardening and a touching commentary on the future of humanity.
Risk assessments: Grow
