These days everything seems to be wrong for Roni, from her stupid name that nobody can pronounce to a body that somebody else must have the instructions for. Meanwhile, Mia wonders how life got so messy. Together, Roni and Mia take us on a journey through family, personal identity, 90s R&B slo-jams, birthday cakes, flavoured condoms and first adventures in sex, love and death through dance and spoken word.

A contemporary hiphop dance theatre performance about many kinds of love,The Glorious Tour is a female-led exposé of the heightened emotions surrounding motherhood, adolescence, growing up and letting go. Combining talking, dancing, reminiscing and paper aeroplanes, The Glorious Tour is an unfiltered social commentary on contemporary life, inspiring audiences and provoking debate.

Fly No Filter combines dance, creative writing, spoken word and the subversive culture of hip-hop to create arresting, physical, narrative dance theatre.

Artistic Director Lucy Crowe has been creating dance theatre since 2000, showing work at venues including The Place, Stratford Circus and Sadler’s Wells. The Glorious Tour is Lucy’s first production with Fly No Filter.

Previous praise for Fly No Filter (formerly SIN Cru Theatre):

"I really enjoyed it!" - Alistair Spalding, Sadler's Wells

Sisyphus Distressing is an experimental music and theatre show, built around the myth of Sisyphus, as it was seen through the eyes of Albert Camus. Devised by Gregory Emfietzis, Sisyphus Distressing focuses on the values, ethics and struggles of modern society, inspired by the well-known myth. A highly emotional sonic journey, melded with a variety of non-musical elements, including drama, lighting, movement, and video. The show is supported by the Arts Council and the Hinrichsen Foundation.

The Metapraxis Ensemble is a flexible group of musicians and collaborators. Their productions focus on presenting contemporary music structured around narratives, and reinforced by extra-musical elements. Metapraxis events have taken place in venues such as IKLECTIK, Cafe Oto, LSO St Lukes, The Space, TripSpace, Iris and Chelsea Theatres.
