Us, is a suite of new work exploring what invisibility means to us all. 

About the project

Us looks into people’s lived experiences of invisibility, how the unseen can shape human interaction and how presumption and prejudice force exclusion. This project will experiment with how movement and sound can make the invisible be seen, heard and felt, in the most visible way possible, centre stage and through the lens.


The work seeks to reveal new perspectives on the experience of invisibility in today’s world. Thought- provoking, moving and entertaining, the work is conceptualised through a dance-for-drone film, a new live work for stage and an exhibition. 

Interwoven sections of real stories that are normally hidden away are finally shared centre stage, creating a space where powerful movement, film and image supports wider learning and acceptance of us all.
