Hannah and Emily have been working together since 2010 when they clocked each other through their love for moving with a stylistic quality both In the air and on the ground. They find joy in playing games on the trapeze and creating new movements through choreographic inspiration. Their work has taken them from doubles acts at festivals to creating bespoke performance for site specific shows.
