We are all faced with anxiety and loneliness at a time of isolation. Yet, like John Donne’s poem - No Man is an Island. Bringing together a group of exceptional tap dancers of different experiences via technology, visitors are able to feel the rhythm again and find courage and solidarity in solo, duet and group dances. These are steps that entwine emotion, relationships and supple movements.
