Shapeshifters is a dance piece about the many sides of one woman's inner self that collide, confuse and eventually co-exist. It's quirky and endearing with a touch of crazy. The piece includes live harp accompaniment, a giant lion mascot, and a pantomime to Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colours”. Its overarching subject is the manifestation of the subconscious state.
