Events

Every few weeks, a section of the show will be presented as a work in progress at events called Transitions – a sneak peek at this brand new performance piece.

On Friday nights and Saturday afternoons, Open Skate sessions welcome anyone, of any skill level, to swing by the Cutaway to skate the space.

If you’re passing by the Cutaway, pop in to see if the team are around and observe the collaboration in action – when SKATE is in the room, the space will be open for audiences to watch the creative process unfold.

Events are free but you do need to register to attend.
