-produced by Imaginate and Barrowland Ballet and funded through the Scottish Government’s Festivals Expo Fund.

Inspired by the Greek legend of Icarus, this is the story of a girl weighed down by the responsibility of the environmental crisis. She dreams of the boy Icarus and begins to work out her escape. This is the story of a girl who’s learning to fly.

At one with the wind, she soars up, up and away…

Too Close To The Sun is about the power of imagination and the sheer determination that lets you fly when forces all around want to pull you down. The award-winning Barrowland Ballet use intricate choreography, spoken word and humour to tell this evocative new story.

“Natasha Gilmore’s choreography explodes on the stage and demonstrates why Barrowland Ballet is one of Scotland’s most successful contemporary dance companies”  – The Reviews Hub on Whiteout
