Princesses can be Pirates/ A school and family dance performance for audiences 4+

What is considered “typical” or “normal” behaviour for girls and for boys? Highly energetic, fun and whimsical, Princesses can be Pirates, playfully questions our gender preconceptions.

Two versatile performers join forces as they journey into unknown territory, where play is everything and everywhere. In a series of hilarious scrapes and lively escapades, they swap toys and activities in their quest to defy stereotypes and break the norm.

The world holds endless possibility for us to discover who we are and who we want to be, and this duet celebrates it all. A dynamic and humorous performance - created for children but inspiring for young and old alike.
