Life’s a beach: About the show:

A fun and playful observation of family life at the beach, with darker undertones of more serious questions such as affordability of holidays and second homes raising local house prices. The work will be familiar, nostalgic and funny. Holidaymakers settling in amongst locals, the British weather, the sandy sandwiches, melting ice creams and greedy seagulls-. 

TimeLess: About the show:

Timeless is about the passing of time and the fear that we as humanity are literally running out of it. Joli Vyann use their unique and dynamic style of dance, circus and theatre on a 7m high rotating hourglass, to tell the story of civilisation as we know it and its fragile relationship with time and nature.
