“visually striking” ★★★★★ The Herald
“the show that’s ignited India’s debate on inclusion” – The Guardian
111 is a powerful duet between two exceptional dancers – Joel Brown and Eve Mutso – as they explore their different strengths and vulnerabilities. Joel is a paraplegic dancer, self-trained, who dances with CandoCo – the UK’s leading inclusive dance company and Eve is former principal dancer with Scottish Ballet.
111 is the number of vertebrae that Joel and Eve have between them… hypothetically. Eve “moves like she has a hundred”, Joel’s spin is fused and he jokes he only has 11.
“moving duet is something special …riveting, sexy and beautifully crafted‘ ★★★★ THE TIMES
“The power of intimacy burns through this beguiling duet … what is conceptually simple is visually beguiling” ★★★★ THE LIST
Shown as part of the Unlimited Festival at Tramway, Glasgow, 111 was a hit with audiences and critics alike. Listed in the Guardian as one of the top 12 shows at 2019’s Edinburgh Fringe, part of Made in Scotland it was a sell out success before touring to the Bounce Festival, Belfast, NI, Tblisi International Festival in Georgia, Dance Live in Aberdeen and IF, Oxford. In 2021 we launched Southbank’s Unlimited’s digital festival with a film of our original Tramway show and joined Hay FestivalArequipa, Peru for a Q&A session.
2022 was a good year for 111, presenting the work at Gathered Together Festival in Glasgow and the Liberty Festival, London before touring to India in December: Spaces for Dialogue | #TakeTheCityKolkata, Pickle Factory, Kolkata; National Centre for Performing Arts (NCPA), Mumbai; Jyoti Ltd. Vadadora; Darapana Academy, Ahmedabad
and finishing at India’s largest Arts festival – Serendipity Arts Festival, Goa.
Our 20 minute film also went international, being chosen for British Council’s Disability Arts Showcase of the Americas (DASH). Shown on Trasnocho Cultural‘s website in Venezuela and in Peru.
