A covert and daring plan
The ultimate escape
And final departure

In Plan is a physical investigation into above, below and beyond.
The implications of confined spaces have been a preoccupation of Michelle’s work to date. In Plan is the epitome of such interes

ts whereby the key concepts of ‘ flight / escape’ are intrinsically linked to the design format which will frame and reorient the audience’s perspective. A rich cinematic-like performance experience.

Prepare to be . . . In Plan

We will offer a range of movement choices that intend to deflect from habitual movement pathways, using improvisational and set tasks.
This is an opportunity to engage in movement and movement making through participation, observation and discussion of the creative process.
