Plan B for Utopia on Wednesday 22nd February from 7.30pm in J2.

Plan B for Utopia is a playful dance theatre work by Dundee-based company Joan Clevillé Dance. You have a plan, and then you don’t. You have a dream, and then you wake up. You fall in love, and your heart gets broken. The question is: do you pick up the pieces and try again? Charismatic performers Solène Weinachter (Scottish Dance Theatre, Gecko) and John Kendall (balletLORENT) explore the notion of utopia and the role that imagination and creativity can play as a driving force for change in our personal and collective lives. Tickets £12.50 (Cons £8) and suitable for audiences age 11+.
