Success, on some level, is important to everyone… but at what cost? Based on the game of squash, and told through dance and theatre, this new work explores what drives us towards our goals and what we lose during this journey.

Taking place within a rudimentary squash court, the performance acts as a metaphor for competitiveness. How do we cope with the balancing act we perform to keep our lives in order? Do we follow the rules… or can we break them?

Room 2 Manoeuvre is an Edinburgh-based dance performance company founded by dancer/choreographer Tony Mills. One of the founding members of Random Aspekts B Boy crew and Cypher Dance, he has worked with Freshmess Dance Company, State of Emergency, Off Kilter and Russian physical theatre maestros Derevo. His recent work includes CARGO by Iron Oxide and new developments by Curious Seed and David Hughes Dance Productions.
