Fish Tank draws similarities and compares life of a goldfish in it’s tank, to the denials we face when dealing with change. Fish Tank explores different feelings linked to change, and imagines every human has their own ‘fish tank’ full of questions, responsibilities and problems. Fish Tank is a conversation between live spoken word, text, music and dance. One solo performer and one solo musician on stage, this intimate performance takes a zoomed in look at today's society.

Fish Tank was created with support from Arts Council England and supported by Ludus Dance, Salford University and Brewery Arts Centre.
