SMOTHER

 

Can you stay true to yourself, when everything suggests you change? 201’s raw, contemporary hip-hop returns in Smother: a story of two men's broken encounter.

 

This groundbreaking production touches on themes of addiction, obsession, and the meaning of commitment. Choreographer Andrea Walker directs a cast of seven dancers in a fast-paced, intimate performance, exploring the relationship of two young men. 

Smother has just completed a UK tour and has had sell-out performances in New York, Europe, and the Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
