Mayfly is a spectacular fusion of water, dance and song with the stage coming to life with water effects and leaping fountains. It is a poetic story expressing the transformative strength of women and explores the fleeting, ephemeral nature of life and how our survival is inextricably linked to our environment. The fountains provide numerous metaphors, representing obstacles in our lives, the ever-changing landscape in which we all live, that nothing stays the same, that we can stand up, overcome and create change. This performance will also be joined by community choirs at the earlier show time of 3.30pm.

This show will have a BSL interpreter present. To view a list of other BSL interpreted shows visit the Accessible SIRF page.

Touch tours are also available for this show on Friday 5 and Saturday 6 August at 2.45pm and 7.30pm.

Supported by Without Walls and commissioned by SIRF and Brighton Festival.
