Close Distance revolves around the lives of four people brought together by where they live. An explosive, helter-skelter ride of dance and impressive contact work, speech, animation and visual projections that will grip you, tickle you, pull on your heartstrings and you ponder on your own life. You will, no doubt, recognise some of the characters you meet along the way and you just might catch a glimpse of yourself. Get ready to fly, tumble, laugh and cry with us. Let us comfort you with a smile and drive you up the wall with our loud music.
