'Mirror, mirror on the wall...' what is it like not to trust your own reflection?
This thought-provoking play tackles the sensitive issue of eating disorders in a theatrically dynamic way. It invites audiences into the topsy-turvy world of a circus where everything is smoke and mirrors and nothing is as it seems. The play is full of strong visual images and powerful dialogue, as well as moments of comedy. It incorporates a wide range of performance, dance and music styles - from clowning to soliloquies, from ballet to belly dancing and from pop to tribal drumming.
