Joseph Toonga’s highly physical and emotive new dance show about fatherhood, Daughter Daughter is inspired by real stories from men and their daughters, Toonga shines a stark and honest light on this profound and transformative experience through his signature abstract hip hop and contemporary style choreography. 

In ‘Performance with Hope’, Grace shares the stage with her 10-year old daughter, Hope. Grace makes decisions and takes care of her daughter, whilst Hope makes decisions and takes care of her mother. As the pair makes decisions together, the audience watch as Grace tries her best to raise a woman in front of their eyes.  

“I can’t explain how she does it, but Grace gives us a space in which to connect with our feelings.” Audience member
