Strange Fish looks at our quest for someone to love and something, or someone, to believe in. The tyranny of couples and groups, the pain of not belonging and the fear of being alone are all laid bare in a series of powerful images. 
Strange Fish mixes humour, religious iconography and physicality, taking it beyond the boundaries of traditional dance.
