Join Boy and Girl as they journey through the joy, hope and heartbreak of looking for love. Colourfully created for public spaces, this promenade performance lets you follow Boy or Girl and listen into their innermost thoughts through wireless headphones. Boy Meets Girl fuses an exciting mix of dance, theatre and silent disco technology.

Boy Meets Girl tells a story that we’ve all heard, seen or experienced hundreds of times before. If you think about it, films, music, literature, social media, TV, magazines and newspapers talk about love a lot… in fact we all do! These things influence our expectations, opinions, feelings and actions from the earliest age. We wanted Boy Meets Girl to echo all of this noise and chatter about love and relationships. So, as you watch the show you may recognise lines from films, text from books or the occasional melody from pop songs used to tell our story. How do these influences really reflect your experience or expectations of love and relationships?

Suitable for all ages
