Sidekicks uses the elements of contemporary circus and theatre to explore what it feels like to touch and have to go without being touched. Sidekicks takes the audience to unexpected situations: meeting a lady who us missing a limb and a man who has lost his face, dining with a misbehaving grandmother and dangling upside-down from a bedhead.
The performance combines text with physicality and visual elements and has been created by a team of theatre, dance and circus professionals.
