This is a big welcome aboard. We promise a flight like no other. Join our two flight attendants as they take you on a journey that slips seamlessly between the everyday and the poetic. Brace yourself for a playful, yet poignant ride on this most unusual aeroplane, fast-propelling you towards the inevitable. Danced with charm and cheek, the two performers interweave delicious full-bodied dancing with spoken word, gestural detail and British Sign Language. This masterful choreography is a microcosm of joy and pathos.
