Four outstanding dancers and celebrated violinist/composer Alexander Balanescu share the stage in this intricate and theatrical, moving and relatable performance

Best known for her work with Rambert, Northern Ballet and HeadspaceDance, Didy Veldman launches her own company Umanoove with The Happiness Project looking at western society’s fascination with fulfilment.
