Speed dating - noun  - an organised social activity in which people seeking romantic relationships have a series of short conversations with potential partners in order to determine whether there is mutual interest.

SpeedDating explores the concept of organised social activity and interaction between people in a series of short conversations. Informed by social observation this live composition work incorporates movement and sound, exposing the choreographer’s choice in real-time.


What do we choose to share? How do we disguise our vulnerability? Delving into human relationships, TRY|TRYING|TRIED is a captivating journey of two people who share meetings, smiles, and a desire to just be.

Created and performed by Shelley Owen and Josh Slater, this duet explores the places we have been, the conversations we have, and the vulnerability we feel. With constant choices made about who and what we present, in what moment.






There will be a Q & A session following this performance.
