‘Measure UP’ is a visual and a danced based movement exploration into the theme of what makes us unique. When we measure ourselves we will start to notice small differences. Differences that can be experienced positively or negatively in the way we feel, express ourselves, dance, smile. But somethings are impossible to measure: love, compassion and friendship.
How do we measure up to expectations placed on us, how do we measure up next to our friends and most importantly how do we measure up to ourselves?

Searching the in-between spaces where words fail us.
Do we need to know the same language and live through similar experiences to communicate with each other?
Dealing with communications between able and disabled bodied people, confessions, the language of texting, and the language of expressions, "No Fun Ction All Anguage" takes a close look at the in-between spaces where words fail us – where we desperately search for meaning – between vowels, consonants and silences.
“No fun ction alL anguage” takes a microscopic look at the in-between spaces where words fail us - where we desperately search for meaning between vowels, consonants and silences. How do we say what we mean or express what we feel? What happens if we don’t have the right words or any words to share our thoughts? Through fragmented narratives, movement and live looping; the unstable constructions of modern-day interactions are explored. Allowing for the audience to ask... do words really help us communicate?
