Ever put your coat on the wrong way? Couldn’t find the arm holes in your trousers? Or just had a day where you didn’t want to wear clothes? Second Hand Dance invites us all to be as creative as we can with the clothes we wear, tempting us to get dressed just a little bit differently.

Climb mountains of clothes, plunge into piles of pants or swing in swathes of skirts. Big or small, scratchy or soft, ordinary or extraordinary – clothes and getting dressed will never be the same again.

Choreographer Rosie Heafford collaborates with dancers, artists and the public to make thought provoking, joyful and highly visual dance performances for all ages.

Followed by a Stay and Play Session (no booking required).

"Sweet, funny, heart-melting, fascinating choreography… You suddenly really, really want to kick off your shoes and join in"

Commissioned by Gulbenkian, University of Kent

Co-commissioned by Sadler’s Wells and Pavilion Dance South West and made in association with Nottingham Lakeside Arts, Dance East, Southbank Centre, South East Dance, The Point and using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
