Created and performed by Shelley Owen and Josh Slater at Theatre Deli Sheffield, Try|Trying|Tried is a dance duet exploring the places we have been, the conversations we have had and the vulnerability we feel.
Engaging and meditative, the performance dives into the heart of human relationships to explore our innate vulnerability and desires. What do we choose to share? And how do we disguise our vulnerability? Try|Trying|Tried is a captivating study of two people who share meetings, smiles, and a desire to just be.
