Cloud Study is part dance, part dream, part theatre, part athletics.

Two compelling dancers: Mufutau Yusuf, an Irishman, born in Nigeria, and Salma Ataya, a Palestinian Dabka dancer, attempt to run 1,000 kilometres in circles and lines through the space, chasing dreams, memories and home.

John Scott, creator of the stunning ‘HYPERACTIVE’ and award-winning, migration themed ‘Fall and Recover’, returns to Smock Alley with a wild explosive running dance: running away, running in circles, which become turns and then falls.

Each fall and run generates beautiful, frantic wild movements, lifts, wild shapes in the air.
