Under My Skin

Under my skin is a show about surgery and operating theatres. Three highly skilled dancers invite the audience to share an insider’s perspective on surgical procedures. Where intricate detail, timing and precisely controlled exchanges are not just an artistic goal, but a matter of life or death.

Under My Skin is a neatly stitched together evening of highly physical dance, medicine and science, which explores the unseen world of the hospital operating theatre and lifts the veil on a closed, clinical and tightly choreographed world.

Developed in association with a leading surgeon and professor, Under My Skin draws on the classical Indian dance technique Bharata Natyam and real-life surgical procedures.
