Motor Show is an original large-scale outdoor dance performance; a wild and fragile spectacle in an acre of forgotten land with the city skyline as a backdrop. Wearing headphones, the audience is transported aurally to the intimate interiors of the cars approaching from the distance.

Commissioned by LIFT, Brighton Festival and Norfolk & Norwich Festival. Presented with Greenwich+Docklands International Festival. Supported by Arts Council England and the Without Walls consortium

A car arrives in a hidden wasteland in which a young couple, completely oblivious to anything other than themselves, kiss, fumble, argue, listen to music, and plan a world for each other. They joke, love, break up, get back together, kiss more, love more, discover and disregard their differences and make promises they can’t possibly understand. Their whole lives are stretched out before them and they are fireproof.
