In a Big Brother world where it’s easy to feel as though we are constantly being watched. Are we ever truly seen?

Combining contemporary dance, and storytelling, SENse explores humanity’s need to be seen, felt and heard and is co-produced and co-choreographed by dancers with learning disabilities working in collaboration with professional Dance Artists, in line with DanceSyndrome’s unique co-delivery model. The piece doesn’t follow a linear narrative, and each episodic piece within the show explores the concept in a different way, developed from individual dancers’ own connections to the theme.



Audience Feedback from the Edinburgh shows

“I’ve got goosebumps! Magical, thought-provoking show that highlights how easy it is to put people in boxes. Very moving. Thank you!”

“Incredibly powerful, beautiful, rendition, DanceSyndrome deserve to be seen, heard locally and internationally.”

“Really lovely piece, very fluid… As a parent/ carer of a disabled child, I was very moved and the performance brought me a lot of joy to see such talent.”

“Wonderful trust and empathy between all of the dancers. Very fluid movements in harmony with the music and objects.”
