They twist and turn, they play and fight, they drum and dance into the night.

The storm has passed, they’re on their own, what happens next is still unknown.

Internationally renowned dance duo and Riverdance alumni, UP & OVER IT, present their brand new show INTO THE WATER. A foot-stomping, hand-tapping hour for the whole family, the show is an action-packed journey of made-up games and folk-filled fun.

"A stylist twist on traditional folk” The Independent

Having travelled the world with their modern take on traditional folk dance and with over 11 million views of their online videos, dancers and choreographers Suzanne Cleary and Peter Harding tour Wales for the first time.

Funny and moving, INTO THE WATER tells the story of two people who find themselves cut-off from the outside world. Exploring how traditions are made, the show questions how simple games can grow into guarded rituals. With a modern twist on the folk stories and dances that are found throughout Northern Europe, the show draws inspiration from the Nordic folklore of Lyf and Lífþrasir, and the cyclical nature of life. We see the characters emerge from the roots of tradition, and follow them as they find their feet through the strange yet familiar dances and playground games they create. With music from British and Irish nouveau-folk artists, audiences will be transported to a dreamlike world through innovative use of sound, light and projection.
