Karen's at her first counselling session. Will her mind let her stay?

This “completely engaging [and] emotionally intelligent" dance theatre duet explores the mental and physical ‘weight’ of our thoughts and inner voice through raw, physical movement, dark humour, original text and music. The audience are taken on a journey with Karen.

"It reveals the fragility of the human condition"

‘’An emotional rollercoaster....gripping from start to finish”

Nadia Strahan, Fringe Review

“Empathetically tactful, gracefully written and exceptionally performed, Weight/Wait is as exquisite as it is heart-wrenching, a welcome conversation on anxiety through dance.”
Hannah Lee, Voice Magazine
