The Ballad of the Apathetic Son and his Narcissistic Mother

“ Underneath this hugely entertaining, hi-energy prowess Is something very deep and personal, laid out before us With such unflinching honesty it stirs your own memories And tears.” ****the herald 

The Ballad features Lucy and Raedie, a mother and son who both REALLY love the singer Sia. They love her music, her videos and especially her hair.

This high-energy performance exposes the inherent narcissism that is at the center of motherhood and how this becomes a burden to the child embarking on adulthood.  It shares something of Lucy and Raedie, past and present. It discovers their new dynamic.


43 Percent

“It’s cheeky, yet ready to grapple with darker issues that touch on the meaning of life.” **** The Herald 

43 Percent is a water-soaked odyssey, which packed out Glasgow’s Tramway at its 2016 Unlimited festival. Performed by 21CC’s Gary Gardiner and leading learning-disabled artist Ian Johnston, it explores the medical and social definitions of being human.  Using dance, video, music and a huge dinghy, the work considers our bodies and the water contained within them, and how a medical world view might quantify, measure and sum us up – are our dancing bodies more than the sum of their parts? Features music chosen by Ian and Gary’s friends and family, including Taylor Swift, Kylie, M People and TLC.

43 Percent is the new show from the team behind Dancer.
