Quarantine, in co-production with Contact and HOME, supported by SICK! Festival presents


An extraordinary quartet of work about our relationship with time, Quarantine’s hugely ambitious project is a piece of mass portraiture, spanning the human lifecycle and made with ‘real people’ in place of actors. In Summer. Autumn. Winter. Spring., each work can stand alone, distinct in form, or be seen as an epic, day-long, marathon event…

Spring. is a performance about expecting.

On stage, a group of  women at various stages of pregnancy ask hundreds of questions about the future.

Some of the women are in the last stages of pregnancy. Some of them have children already, some don’t. In a few short weeks, their lives will change dramatically.

Spring. is about a group of women, their unborn babies, and sharing moment to imagine how the world will change when those babies are born.

The final part in a quartet of performances about the human life cycle, Spring. is a dance of questions, a beautifully choreographed celebration of new beginnings.

Quarantine, our Associate Company, is a unique voice in British theatre – internationally acclaimed for experiments with everyday life.
