“Thought-provoking, striking dance that takes on the complexities of sex and relationships in the contemporary world of teenage life” – MAC Artistic Director Debbie Kermode

“MTV meets dance-theatre”

“An intelligent captivating performance, covering everything the next generation of younger people should experience.”

“Anyone who is having sex, or not, should see this masterpiece!”
“An immersive joy!”

“Visceral club-style dance theatre for expressing the hedonism and fear of young people stepping into the world of sex and relationships.”

“A behind the scenes tour of a house party, so much energy and so much fun!”
