Eyes see, fingers touch, noses breathe in deep. Tongues taste, ears hear, bodies ready - LEAP!

What’s this? What does it look like? How does it feel? Does it smell nasty, or taste nice? Does it make a noise? Join two dancers and a musician as they use their eyes and ears, noses and mouths, fingers and feet to discover a world of play that makes the ordinary extraordinary.

FIVE is a playful exploration of our five human senses through dance, movement and live music. This warm, funny and inclusive show is a perfect introduction to live performance for children age 3 to 6 and their grown-ups.

Nominated for two Dora Mavor Moore awards: ‘Outstanding Production’ and ‘Outstanding Performance- Ensemble’ in the Theatre for Young Audiences section- Toronto, Canada.

'Magic... One dreamy show of dance and movement, taking us through the five senses... Simple, but executed perfectly'

The Northern Echo

'Absolutely magical from beginning to end. I can’t imagine a more positive, joyful and memorable way for children to be introduced to this art form'
