#nofilter is an explosive and entertaining dance piece exploring social media and mental health. Comedic and relevant- the piece is aimed at young people aged 11-24. A fast paced series of images, movement and dialogue explore the curious and fantastical traits of our online personas, with just a small helping of kale. #nofilter is available for performances in schools and colleges across the UK.

β€œThe teacher in me sees the amazing potential for #nofilter as a brilliant stimulus for discussion and reflection on social media, relationships and mental health in schools. #nofilter is a fantastically entertaining piece, performed brilliantly, that makes you laugh, squirm and think in equal measure.”
